US Institutions Under Assault From Trump

Message 41 of 89 (59 Views)

Trump isn't a Republican, his own policies can change 180 degrees within 24 hours. He has no character. Despite his slogan, he's not about America. It's all about an incredible ego-maniac. The world revolves around Donald Trump, and finally, evern Republicans are finally beginnng to realize that nothing positive will get accomplished while he's the President. 

 

They will instead be forced to deal with his self-absorbed, childish, insulting behavior every day of the week. The only people benefitting from this clown are the late night comedians who no longer have to write their own material. All they have to do is repeat what Trump did or said earlier in the day.

NH--By the time all the Felonies and atrocities that your boy Trump has committed have been investigated,  that statute of limitations will have long past expired. 

Really sad that that's all right wingers have with regard to defending the indefensible  that surrounds the trump administration.

 

Yeah,  I think I'm right, that ship has absolutely sailed.

The above statement is completely FALSE. The FBI is made up of Professionals who do not bow to politics. In addition, I read several articles which praised President Obama for NOT interfering with the FBI.


False it is....That does not diminish the intended effect to undermine the very foundations of the institutions that keep this Nation alive.  Voter percentages favor the extremes, right or left.  The system is itself vulnerable to abuse by those extremists.  We...the sane ones...must somehow prevent the radicals from imposing their agenda on ALL the rest.  I know you know that. 

 

There is a whole pot of those who cannot or will not see it that way. They ARE in the minority.... by quite a bit.  However, the majority is fractured.  They can't seem to get its * * * * together enough to fix what needs fixing.  'They' are still 'sitting on their hands' waiting for the 'good fairy' to do their work for them.  'They' have abdicated their responsiblility at the polls and now it really IS the career professionals who 'hold the line' against the extremists until 'they' come to their senses.  2018 is just down the road a piece.  It will either happen then or not at all.  


False it isn't.....true it is. I have stated this before, ignoring the truth of it will not diminish it's veracity. The politicization of the various federal agencies under Obama does not refer to the individual hard working career employees for the most part. it refers to the political appointees and their senior leadership who can use the work of the professionals in a partisan way. 

 

Example - the "tarmac summit".

Example - Lois Lerner.

Trump is the Clown President who turned the U.S. government into an International Joke. Every day we must deal with another one of his lies, insults, and possible cover up. Of course Trump lovers don't see what the rest of the world sees because they have no standards for Trump and they blindly defend every horrible thing he does or says.

This thread is about the damage that idiot in the White House has done to our country. Whether one is a Democrat or Republican, that damage is clear and easily discernible. 

Take a look at what Republican Congressman and Senators are saying today about this failed administration. 

Having said that, I was suggest you go to a reputable news source, rather than FOX, Breitbart or the Beacon where people still spin the lies and fantasies that some if those on the right still swallow.

 We are to the point where trump's  incompetence can no longer be ignited. It is abundantly clear that he is unfit to hold this office. And as a country-- republican, democrat,  liberal, tea party,  socialist, what have you, it is in the best interest of this country  for this fool to resign or to be removed. ASAP!!

RK--RE:attack by Dems--Absolutely! As the Republicans fail to put country before party, allowing the atrocities of the trump administration to continues, Dems are screaming at the top of their lungs with regard to these forestated atrocities.

But, as I listen to CNN today, the Republicans are starting to get what trump is doing--maybe the drunkenness is fading--maybe they will too soon begin to act in a responsible way and move to remove the fool in the White House, for today, Republicans, who were firmly opposed to an independent counsel, are now reconsidering!  The House Government Oversite Committee and the Senate Intelligence Committee are now demanding that all records detailing conversations that took place between the president and the former FBI Director, James Comey, including WH tapes, if any.  The Committee from the House imposing a one week deadline.

Amazing, is it possible that the Republicans are finally going to start doing their jobs?  Hard to believe that it has anything to do with integrity, since so few have shown any--AT ALL.

No, as usual, I beleive that the stench of trump has become too strong.  They have heard their constituents screaming for justice, and, maybe, just maybe the Republicans will climb out from under the slimy rocks under which they have been hiding, and do something positive for this country after a disasterous run of ruinous votes and actions.


"Atrocities" and "aforestated atrocities" - a bit of hyperbole there. Even the NYT whose every word is accepted as legal evidence in any court in the land (right??) hasn't gone that far.

 

Besides the manufactured scandal du jour, he's doing a pretty good job as President, isn't he?

umbarch--I am in total agreement with your last post.  Deflection is often used when other, reasonable options, are available to defend one's point.

With regard, to another well made point, this is not a partisan issue.  This is an issue about which it  is imperative to handle in the most expeditious way possible. Our democracy is at risk. 


Not a partisan issue??? Of course it is. To those so consumed by hatred of our President, it is impossible to see this for what it is.

 

The Dems lost, the Dems are trying to cut their losses by shackling the President. After all we do have "The Resistance" - that is a Dem tool.

That makes total sense to the 'dear leader' and every one of his fool/tools.  Not so much to anyone else.  There is a reason for it all.  Wanna talk plots?  There it is!


The aspects of that "despot" stuff sounds very much like the actions of the radical left. The only difference is that instead of an individual it is a communal effort - and such communal efforts usually end up with a "Dear Leader" coming forward after the revolution.

 

Yep, there it is.


Nahhh....Right/Left is irrelevant and you know it.  Using terms like 'actions of the radical left' and 'communal effort' is calculated to deflect from the radical nature of the extreme right.  'Conseratives' they are not....and neither are you.  I am absolutely not interested in serving as a platform for any propagandist...right or left. Doesn't much matter to me where you fit on that teeter-totter..it's all propaganda.  Dissembling to advocate....truth has no place in that.


I disagree. When you start looking at that "dear leader' jazz, you are looking at governments formed along "communal" lines. Remember, our nation was formed with an intentionally diminished central government as far as internal affairs were concerned, Our Founding Fathers treasured individual rights, not collective rights.

 

So there is a left/right divide along ideological lines in our nation today - one calls for individual rights and the other for collective rights.

 

As an aside - I am not Conservative? Why is that??
