Also, you all realize that these new emails were discovered amongst emails that had been deleted from her server, if I understand this correctly, right? We still gonna argue over whether she had a private server for less-than-legitimate reasons?

Just wanted to point out that according to this page the whole email thing has happened before with Colin Powell and Jeb Bush: https://techcrunch.com/2016/07/28/wh...-about-anyway/


Quote:
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell, under the Bush administration, ran his own email server and later wiped it, saying of the files stored therein: “I don’t have any to turn over. I did not keep a cache of them. I did not print them off. I do not have thousands of pages somewhere in my personal files.”

Jeb Bush, while Governor of Florida, did the same thing:

The former governor conducted all his communication on his private Jeb@jeb.org account and turned over the hand-selected batch to the state archives when he left office. Absent from the stash are emails the governor deemed not relevant to the public record: those relating to politics, fundraising and personal matters while he was governor.

I know, and that's part of the problem.

His real economic plan IS a trickle down plan. Economists will define it as such, and most republicans will defend it as such.

I'm not sure why you are believing otherwise?

Actually, it's a joke in the architectural community. It's nothing but a phallic symbol. It's only goal was height for heights sake.

It was also built by illegal means that Trump is railing against. There's a reason that picture isn't showing up in his political ads. Ask yourself why?

US Presidential Election XII

Not to defend Trump, but I'm not sure if it matters what the architecture community says, if the public isn't really aware. I'd say it's 'iconic' in some petty light. So is that big ugly sliver building in midtown Manhattan. People know it, but it doesn't have a reputation like say... Empire, 1WTC, Sears/Willis, Chrysler, Transamerica, etc. it's just a big building. Nobody "identifies" it nationally or globally like other buildings.

My point is history will forget it. After the new and shiny wears off it has nothing to remember. There's nothing innovative, green, or progressive in anyway about this building. It was about ego.

You could make the argument that our policies helped form ISIS (going as far back as Colin Powell mentioning Baghdadi and giving him cred)......but that's not what Trump replied. He said FOUNDER.

It's insane. Even when presented with a topic he could clearly make a great point, he goes full retard

An expert pundit on Fox News said that Trump is exactly right.

A pundit on Fox agreed with Trump?

This is my shocked face.

I suppose I'm partially agreeing with you here. My main point is just that "iconic" transcends the professional opinion, but it's not really all that iconic. It's what you're saying... just a tall building.

Fox is the only one reporting on Trump with a Republican bias, of course it does try to shed a good light on him, but I've watched CNN which is supposed to be objective, and they are in attack mode against Trump.

I would be against Trump if I watched the mainstream media solely. They are out to discredit him....I don't blame him for fighting against them.

Gotta also watch interviews that get into a better depth of what Trump stands for. Better to judge then. He speaks rationally on many topics.

A tall building that he didn't build. Because he hasn't built anything for real in over twenty years, right? He just licenses his name out to be put on buildings that other people build, in exchange for a fee.

Fox News, like CNN and MSNBC, is part of pretty much every basic cable package in the country. Let's not pretend it's not part of the mainstream just because it's conservative.
