Fucking, bulliani!

Hey, I'll use almost any wisp of a rumour etc to curse that awful man!

It's certainly tempting, fucking neo-nazis!

Got your reply, Vlad. Understood.

Even something like FDR's - Second Bill of Rights, which went kaput because he died suddenly (and I think not many people know about it, I found out about it only like 7 yes ago) would not spark any interest in you IF it applied to all people?

A bunch of Socialist & Communist countries didn't exactly do so great either, you know.

I'm pretty willing to own up to my country's errors.

Thanks, Dave C.
Wasn't on the ledge, but gets me further away.

Hopefully the man that would be the Idiot King doesn't do something even more stoopid re this situation.

No WW3 this weekend, so that has to be a success for this administration.

I realize stuff's overblown in media and my rational brain is telling me there's no real need for major fear, and yet ... AND YET. Last night I had a dream I was in London (who knows why? it's weird in my head) and I saw a nuclear bomb explode.

So that was fun. Thanks, brain.

It does seem like tensions are a lot higher than they've been in a long time. Even with the war in Afghanistan and Iraq i never really worried about it spilling over to anywhere else.

Now the thought of Middle East, North Korea, Russia, Iran, China.....all trying to flex muscle.

Big election coming up in France this weekend, and the following correct?

The first round of the French election is April 23, the second round is May 7.

The rational part of my brain is telling me that all-out war between nations is still very unlikely, partly because in my mind the leaders of these countries all need each other and these tensions to justify their position.

And yet, I am aware that things could quite easily spiral out of control.

Eek. Freaky.

Yeah, the news has been giving me some deeply disturbing thoughts lately, too. The GOP really needs to do something about Trump as soon as possible, and preferably that "something" will include ousting him, either through impeachment or because they're concerned about his loose cannon attitude or whatever. His approval rating sucks (hell, even his own supporters are starting to get pissed off at him lately), GOP politicians are getting shouted down at town halls, the party's still not able to really accomplish any sort of legislation despite having a majority.

So it's not like they'll have much push back from voters, and if they care at all about their re-election chances next year, they're going to have to do something soon. And that something really has to include dealing with/getting rid of Trump, as well as Bannon and Spicer, and trying to get some people with actual experience of some sort to handle things for the foreseeable future. Obviously it won't completely fix all of our problems, but at least we wouldn't have to worry about Trump opening his big mouth and further provoking people and other crap like that.

I'd love it if Pence could go, too, but I doubt that'd be likely to happen. But at least with him I'd be less concerned about him spouting off random shit on Twitter to antagonize other leaders or throwing tantrums the way Trump does when he doesn't get his way. How somebody hasn't officially taken away Trump's Twitter account or taken it over for him at this point is beyond me.

ETA: I'm seeing a thing on the Yahoo! front page about how the marijuana issue might actually bring Congress together. Maybe that's the solution to our problems. All the politicians here and abroad should just smoke some weed .

Does anyone read Louise Mensche on Twitter? Now it might all be conspiracy theory nonsense but she's been right in the past and yesterday and today she's been posting incredible stuff. The intelligence agencies (German and UK handed then to the US) have Trump on tape, a tape his election team took to Russia offering Putin influence over US policies if Putin hacked the election last year and Trump won! This has also been verified by different IC sources from another Twitter user (@TrueFactsStated)and she seems certain about it. This is the "Kompromat" Russia have on Trump . Mensch has a whole timeline of events and details about it. Also, it's coming out today that there are rumours (only rumours) that intelligence agencies have intercepts of Ryan and McConnell funnelling Russian money into the campaign last year. Also, Pence is now being implicated in the Russian stuff! It's incredible IF true but Mensche hasbgenerally been spot on. Apparently it will all come out soon and Trump will be heading to jail!

The last thing the left needs is to start condoning conspiracy theories in the way that the right did. Otherwise, it's eight solid years of Trump. Please criticize this man for what he does wrong. Funnel out the crap and stay focused.

Yeah I follow her and it's really interesting. Like you said, not sure if it's all conspiracy theory. From what I understand though, she is a Republican.

Agreed.

Also, I don't know if my heart can handle cycles of briefly hoping that Trump will be jailed before remembering that it's not going to happen.

I like to believe it, if it's not true we're heading for a nuclear war. It helps me sleep better at night!

Heh. This.

Course, I never really thought there was a chance he'd be jailed. I just keep hoping he'll be impeached or forced out in some other similar manner.

Getting Bannon out of there will make me feel a little bit better. If Trump surrounds himself with the usual suspects of a typical GOP (or DEM) administration, we'll see eight years like Dubya. Though that being said he did start two wars....

Yes. No matter what, Bannon absolutely has to go as soon as humanly possible.

I saw this article yesterday online that seems to kinda tie in to what you're saying about a typical administration.

New Power Center in Trumpland: The ‘Axis of Adults’ - The Daily Beast

Setting aside the fact that the idea of government officials acting like adults is news, if there's enough truth to this, it's an interesting potential shift. I'll take anything that can try and calm things down some and attempt to muzzle Trump.

The irony of course is that Bannon is the I've who WANTS to keep us out of wars.

Bannon seemed to be pretty pro war with China, or maybe he just thought we would be at war with them instead of wanting it to be.

Bannon was pro trade war with China... He's a nationalist who's generally against foreign intervention and the US being the policeman of the world. He's a flaming racist and anti Semite, so there's that - but the bombings and saber rattling is all #TeamKush.
