Posted in: Trump revokes ex-CIA chief's security clearance, evaluating other critics See in context

@Laguna: It may be detrimental to national security, but that's the least on Trump's mind 

How is removing the government security clearance of a private citizen who has no business with the government and who is employed by a private corporation detrimental to national security? I would argue it is beneficial to national security because highly sensitive national secrets should be limited to those who have a need to know. As an employee of CNN with no business with government he no longer has a need to know. There is no logic to this Leftist talking point. It’s not like he is the only person who has ever run the CIA. Are Dems and the Leftist media not up on the news that there is a new person in that position now?

And those complaining about free speech - how does losing his security clearance prevent Brennan from talking on CNN? Answer- it doesn’t. Brennan will not be imprisoned for exercising his right to free speech. He can and will attack Trump every single day and he will be paid much more money than he ever made as head of a government agency. If you are a Democrat that’s got to make you happy as a clam. Why all the hate and anger over nothing?

@Toasted: Of course, true communism (for the people and by the people) tends (like capitalism) to get hijacked by insecure and egotistical men who cannot stand criticism. And we all know how that pans out.

Tends? No, true Communism always gets hijacked by someone who thinks they know better about how society should be ordered thereby putting their own interests above all others. Communism and it’s little brother Socialism always has people justifying their own aggrandizement over the proletariat/working class - because it is human nature to put ones own interests first. Even over those the collectivists say they are looking out for. It’s how Obama can say while he is in office that rich people don’t need to be too rich and now he is a multi millionaire ( just signed a fat deal with NetFlix).

Capitalism is the only system that gives everyone a chance to rise from a modest standing and become wealthy like Obama and the Clintons without having to resort to theft. Communists and Socialists get filthy rich the way Castro and Maduro did it - by taking money from the general treasury and depositing it in foreign accounts. Or by someone higher up the latter handing down a government benefit the way Kings gave tribute to their most loyal retainers. People like Castro, Maduro, Mao, and Stalin are dyed in the wool collectivists who are and we’re hero’s to the masses of deluded proletarians in the West too wedded to the socialist ideal (or simply lazy) to get off their own butts to make the system work for themselves.

Japanese majority clearly are against change the peace constitution, yet Abe publicly stated that his goal is to against the majority. 

The people of Japan could vote his party out of power if the Constitution issue is important to them.

Venezuela is a big bright warning sign for those in the West who seek to go further down the path of Socialism. It’s an ideology incompatible with basic human nature - a fact proven over and over again over the past century.

At some point people need to get a grip and realize that it isn’t skin color that matters, it is the content of character that makes for a solid immigration system. Let in people who want to add to the nation who are well grounded in the countries political, economic, and social culture. Those things are not determined by skin color or religion.

Posted in: Prosecution rests in Manafort tax evasion and fraud trial See in context

How do you know?

It’s a public trial. Trump was barely been mentioned in the prosecutions case. This case was all about an attempt to make Manafort lie about Trump. Mueller dug up some stuff from his past and was holding it over Manaforts head to get him to testify against Trump. Manafort has nothing to give him so Mueller is just playing out the string in this dead end portion of his investigation. Gates is taking advantage of Muellers zeal to get Manafort by cutting a deal to get a light sentence. Maybe Gates has something on Trump but if so, it isn’t a part of this trial.

The biggest take away I have from this trial is why it was necessary for there to be a special counsel in order to catch the sort of criminality Manafort and Gates were apparently involved in? Several more people including the brother of Clinton’s right hand man John Podesta have also been caught doing something illegal. But for some reason his case was handed off to a federal prosecutor. How much criminality is out there if it takes a dedicated special prosecutor to find all this illegality would not have been found? The system is rotten.

Posted in: 1st 'comfort women' statue installed in Taiwan See in context

The people of Taiwan and other nations should not in any way be dissuaded from marking the history of the comfort women. As a post above states, all countries have been involved in tragic historical events or periods of time. It is when these remembrances are turned into a weapon for the benefit of people today who were in no way directly affected by the past event is what causes a problem for me.

After saying "one or two Japanese politicians have in the past expressed remorse," Ma was evasive when asked what kind of apology he would deem satisfactory. He said the Japanese government needed to figure that out itself, and he was in no position to tell it what to do.

The past should be remembered and learned from. It isn’t an excuse to use bitter memories for political gain when the Japanese have tried to make amends and you reject it.

Posted in: Democrats pour money into long shot races See in context

The answer is that the US electoral system is so fundamentally flawed, that the candidate who spends more is almost inevitably the one who wins

Well not exactly. Hillary spent about 1/3 more than Trump and still lost. The extra hundreds of millions of dollars bought her a lonely walk in the woods. Incumbency is the biggest advantage. Other candidates win when there is a wave election- as we are set to see this November. If a candidate is within shouting distance a wave has a chance to get them over the top regardless of having less money than your opponent. If Sri Kulkarni is close enough by election day the money Narasimhan is putting up could have a marginal influence on the outcome. Sometimes that’s enough - sometimes it’s not.

Absolutely stupid system, discrimination based on a noncence idea of gender roles. 

Very true. If these same Japanese women applied for a medical school in the United States they would have points added to their test totals. Unless of course they apply to a regular college such as Harvard or the University of North Carolina where points are deducted because of the fear of having too many Asians. Bias is bias. Discrimination is discrimination. End it - don’t mend it.

@nishikat: Trump calls black people the N-word

You keep writing that Trump used the n-word but I haven’t seen or heard the proof. It is certainly possible. I would suppose that the vast majority of adult Americans have uttered the word out loud for some reason or other. Maybe even you?

Of course anytime someone uses an epithet the context of its’ use matters greatly. It is very likely that both Trump and Obama have uttered the word at least once in their lifetimes. Both have likely used words like cracker and redneck as well. Does that prove that either is a racist? No it doesn’t.

Obama has been pals with a black nationalist preacher and considered him his mentor. You can’t overlook this racist association. Just as I see Obama’s photo with Farrakhan evidence of his racism. If there is a picture produced of Trump meeting with a white nationalist leader such as David Duke I would consider that evidence of racism.

http://www.phillytrib.com/news/hidden-photo-of-obama-and-farrakhan-released-in-new-book/article_0b95a0d4-05fe-5b90-b9c7-23206514acea.html

Making a claim that Trump said the n-word is not based on any publicly available evidence and is not proof of anything nefarious. But I am waiting for the evidence to be produced.

18 is in no way whatsoever "physically better" than 32.

Scientifically, 18 and the years directly following are closer to a males physical peak. There is a mental aspect to being in the military but as America’s involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan has demonstrated physical prowess remains extremely important.

"I have plenty more examples, but I have a meeting to go to tonight, and I have to wash my sheet first..."

Did you ever ask yourself why so many more black Americans are in prison today as opposed to during the Jim Crowe era? There is no systemic government laws in America today that discriminate by race - except for affirmative action and it’s related policies adopted throughout the private sector. So how was the klan meeting last night? Did you have a special reading of Mein Kampf - that’s always a popular event with people who identify as racist.

Joe: As someone who was stationed at Yokosuka Naval base from 91 to 94. Let the Japanese people decide if they still want US personnel on the ground. It's a awesome country to live in and love visiting every chance i get. If they still want us their but down size the number of bases that should be considered too...

I was stationed there from 86 to 89. I am proud of the stability that the US - Japan alliance has created in the region up through the Cold War. But things have changed and it would be beneficial for both sides to recommit with full public support or move on to some other more acceptable defense arrangement.

Well, Wolfpack. They sent the Americans home. Now they are completely unable to resist China.

True - but that was their choice. The Philippines could invite America back if they they thought it was a mistake. But then America has a choice in the matter as well and could choose not to go back. The people and their leaders are responsible for their own country and must live with their choices. For Japan the debate that would be caused by putting forth a referendum on the American defense alliance would force the people to really think seriously about their options and make a choice that they are willing to live with. The Okinawans would probably make the decision much harder but at least the people could say they made the decision. As it is the American alliance is considered an artifact of a war that few people alive today can remember.

@Simon: Besides, how about the "rage and insane behaviour" we might have seen from Trump supporters who were threatening to camp outside the White House with their guns if Hillary Clinton had won?

Well since Hillary lost to the second worst presidential candidate in American history we will never know how Trump supporters would have reacted had she won. We do know however that feminists, socialists, and communists decided to protest the results of a free election with p****y’s on their heads.

If you cannot do that, then she's not a criminal, so stop it with this hyper-partisan- fueled nonsense already. 

Okay by that standard you cannot say Trump is a racist because he has never been convicted of racism. You cannot say he colluded with the Russians because he has not been convicted of collusion. Yet that doesn’t stop many, many of his political opponents from doing so.

I happen to believe that America’s criminal justice system is hopelessly corrupt. You can see that in the fact that the Democrat party funneled money through third party cutouts to gather opposition research from the very same Russians that Trump is accused of colluding with. This tainted kompromat was used to spy on American citizens related to Trumps campaign. This politicized information is being used by the special counsel in Comey’s attempt to undo the results of the 2016 election. If the roles were reversed I guarantee you that the Left would be raising holy hell right now.

Now that it is acceptable to spy on an opposing party’s election campaign maybe Trump will find some obscure violation that will allow him to turn the tables and surveil the Dem candidate in 2020. The precedent has been set.

You may trust all law enforcement (except of course for the police that are accused of systematically oppressing black citizens ) but I don’t.

I’m not essentially saying anything, what I’m saying is that our President said of White Supremacists “some are good people” – that’s a fact. 

The press is saying that but that isn’t what he actually said. Show me a quote where Trump states that ‘some white nationalists are good people’. If never said that. That’s a fact. The press was not satisfied that Trump blamed both sides for the violence. The press and Democrats believe that Antifa violence is justified. It isn’t.

Trump said there were some good people protesting to keep the Lee statue who had nothing to do with the white racists. Recall that the statue was what the protest was about. Antifa showed up with the intent to cause a violent conflict. That is Antifa’s m.o. They are violently attacking groups that are simply protesting for freedom of speech. None of the Antifa people are “good people.” They are just as violent as the white nationalists. That’s a fact.

Japan should have a national referendum on US troops in the country. If the people decide that Japan can defend itself against China and North Korea then the Americans can finally go home. This also gives the people of Okinawa a chance to make their case to the rest of Japan. The Philippines made this decision back in the 1990’s and it has improved relations. Should the people of Japan decide the US should stay then it would reset the relationship on more even terms.

I personnally would prefer the US leave but maintain its defense relationship without permanently stationed military forces. Smaller short term rotational deployments can maintain readiness and training without causing as much friction between the two countries.

Texas: Hopefully, you are not being suckered into believing the professional pollsters (ya know, the ones who predicted "Hillary in a landslide" right up to Election Day in November 2016) 

Admittedly I did not think Trump had much chance of beating Hillary. Not after two elections in which Americans voted in an inexperienced Senator who covorted with 1960’s domestic terrorists and attended a racist church for 17 years.

Trump won not only because Hillary was a criminal but also because Obama took his party so far to the racialist identity politics extreme. But if you pull back and look at past cycles it makes more sense how he won in 2016. A backlash to a backlash to the previous backlash. That’s what I am expecting in the Fall. Losing at least one house in Congress is also Trumps best chance of being re-elected.

Clippety: It might make you feel better about supporting a liar. Truth is, we don't care too much about your feelings. You chose a criminal as your captain, get used to being called out for it.

I did not vote for Trump but he is the president of all Americans until at least January 2021. I do get a kick out of how much he drives the Left out of their minds with rage and insane behavior. It exposes their intolerance and hateful politics. Whoever was elected in 2016 was going to be impeached- that’s just how polarized Americans are at this point in history. Whether you care about others or not is really not at issue anymore- we all know that Americans only care about their own tribe now.

The party that controls the White House almost always takes a shellacking in the mid-term elections. Ask Barack, he knows. For whatever reason this is how it always works in American politics. Dems will take the House and Republicans will be lucky to hold onto the Senate despite all the advantages they have with this cycles electoral map.

Trump will be impeached - the Dems are rabid for it. The Senate however will not convict and Trump will serve out his term. If history holds true to form though, the Dems should hope that they do not take the House and impeach him. Doing so gives the President a visible opponent to run against just as Obama had prior to his re-election. If you are a Democrat the 2020 election is very critical to your socialist agenda. If Trump gets 2 or 3 more Supreme Court picks it’s game over for the next 30 to 40 years.
