You may be disappointed by the Mueller report


#237

Sir, please never, ever forget fat donald’s once owned a professional football team which he ran to the ground.


#238

Is there a breakdown of legal/illegal employees?


#240

Yes -

Legal people working for a Trump business = Trump hired them, knows them all, great, great employees
Illegals working for a Trump business = Trump has no idea who does the day to day hiring


#241

He gets credit for hiring thousands of people but gets a pass on responsibility for the illegal hires. No wonder this guy is always winning.


#245

Lock her up! What else? :roll_eyes:


#249

The left is scrambling for new narratives. Rehashing old ones aren’t going to work especially after two years of Russian collusion scam. Trump’s approval rating is going to go up after the Mueller report. The recent symptons of Smollett’s terminal stage TDS, has showcased the wicked ways of the left. You have lefties tormented becauseTrump won’t be indicted and Jussie wasn’t lynched by MAGA red hat, red neck, homophobic white supremacy racists.


#251

Really? Conservatives are still going on about Benghazi, email servers and vince foster bit it is the left that using old narratives?

The self awareness of trump worshippers is less than zero…


#252

Let me stop you there. It’s not 2 years of, it’s 8 years of Obama and before that 8 years of Bush. These same narratives just change the mouths they come out of. I know this because I heard that the right was scrambling for narratives too. There are no new narratives. That’s probably why you see so few changed minds around here, about anything.


#258

Except it is not their duty to even be discussing the removal of a President by any means. They are giving themselves a power that is not theirs.


#259

Discussing something is not giving oneself the power to act on it.


#260

You need “power” to discuss the 25th amendment?

Listen to yourself.


#261

From whom does the 25th Amendment REQUIRE that the suggestion to invoke it MUST originate? (Only language from the amendment itself is acceptable - the law doesn’t care what we think).


#263

Listen to your self. You all are busy hollering about Trump going against the constitution and grabbing powers that are not his.
The DOJ tried to grab power that was not theirs when they discussed using the 25 amendment while they were on the job to remove a president. And they did more than just discuss they polled congress to see if they could get enough votes to enact the 25 amendment.
This is a power that is not theirs. They can gather information and give it to the congress but it is up to congress to decide what to do with that information.
Every position in government has rules and duties. The constitution does not give the DOJ the authority to remove a president and the fact that they discussed it and acted on it was unconstitutional.


#265

I think you need to reread the story because you’re not getting it right. They didn’t try to get him tossed themselves. They didn’t poll Congress. They talked about, at most, lobbying members of the cabinet to do so.

In case you haven’t connected the news dots… Putin controls the largest oil company in Russia. He made a 500 Billion dollar deal with the CEO of Exxon Mobil. Obama put sanctions in place which stopped that deal. Russia then hacked into our government in order to get Trump elected. When the CIA told Congress this in September (James Comey was also in that meeting), Mitch McConnell refused to tell the American people, blackmailing Obama saying he would frame it as playing partisan politics during the election. Comey released the infamous no-information letter. Mitch McConnell’s wife was picked for Trump’s cabinet. Wonder why our President has been so quick to dismiss the CIA’s findings?..it gets better…2/…Here are some facts : Decide for yourselves 1) Trump owes Blackstone/ Bayrock group $560 million dollars (one of his largest debtors and the primary reason he won’t reveal his tax returns)
2) Blackstone is owned wholly by Russian billionaires, who owe their position to Putin and have made billions from their work with the Russian government.
3) Other companies that have borrowed from Blackstone have claimed that owing money to them is like owing to the Russian mob and while you owe them, they own you for many favors.
4) The Russian economy is badly faltering under the weight of its over-dependence on raw materials which as you know have plummeted in the last 2 years leaving the Russian economy scrambling to pay its debts.
5) Russia has an impetus to influence our election to ensure the per barrel oil prices are above $65 ( they are currently hovering around $50)
6) Russia can’t affordably get at 80% of its oil reserves and reduce its per barrel cost to compete with America at $45 or Saudi Arabia at $39. With Iranian sanctions being lifted Russia will find another inexpensive competitor increasing production and pushing Russia further down the list of suppliers.
As for Iranian sanctions, the 6 countries lifting them allowing Iran to collect on the billions it is owed for pumping oil but not being paid for it. These billions Iran can only get if the Iranian nuclear deal is signed. Trump spoke of ending the deals which would cause oil sales sanctions to be reimposed, which would make Russian oil more competitive.
7) Rex Tillerson (Trump’s ex Secretary of State) was the head of ExxonMobil, which is in possession of patented technology that could help Putin extract 45% more oil at a significant cost savings to Russia, helping Putin put money in the Russian coffers to help reconstitute its military and finally afford to mass produce the new and improved systems that it had invented before the Russian economy had slowed so much.
8 ) Putin cannot get access to these new cost saving technologies OR outside oil field development money, due to US sanctions on Russia, because of its involvement in Ukrainian civil war.
9) Look for Trump to end sanctions on Russia and to back out of the Iranian nuclear deal, to help Russia rebuild its economy, strengthen Putin and make Tillerson and Trump even richer, thus allowing Trump to satisfy his creditors at Blackstone.
10) With Trump’s fabricated hatred of NATO and the U.N., the Russian military reconstituted, the threat to the Baltic states is real. Russia retaking their access to the Baltic Sea from Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia and threatening the shipping of millions of cubic feet of natural gas to lower Europe from Scandinavia, allowing Russia to make a good case for its oil and gas being piped into eastern Europe.

And that’s all it means.

from your article:

In the USFL’s inaugural season of 1983, the Generals were not the best. They went 6–12 (18 games!)

Trump buys the team for 1984 season.

So what happened first season under Trump:

Did the Generals make incredible progress once Trump took over?

They did! So much progress. The Generals went 14–4 and made the playoffs.

Remarkable turn around.

1985 season:

the Generals regressed to 11–7,

Still a winning season. Remember Trump only owned ONE team in the leage.

No 1986 season as the league filed bankruptcy and didn’t play again.

How was that running the team into the ground having two winning seasons after he took over (by winning season, more games won than lost).

Love to hear the explination.


#271

Going to need more red string and thumb tacks.


#272

Yes, really

You keep characterizing this as a “power grab”. Had they somehow succeeded, not a one of them would have gained an iota more power. So, no.

And, for the last time and fer cryin’ out loud, they were not attempting to “use DOJ authority to remove the President”. DOJ authority played no part in this. They discussed using CONSTITUTIONAL authority. That doesn’t make it “sedition”. If I, as a citizen, write an impassioned, well-reasoned letter to Mike Pence questioning Donald Trump’s fitness for office, and ASKING him to invoke the 25th, am I guilty of sedition? The ONLY difference between me and them is they have FAR better intel on the kook, and they (apparently) didn’t actively lobby for his removal.
