Well, well, well... Trump's best buddy in the Middle East, Benjamin Netanyahu, has been charged with corruption. He is "the first sitting Israeli prime minister to face criminal charges".

Maybe Trump and Netanyahu can share yet another thing in common very soon.
a cell perhaps

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

So what are the odds that Trump decides to resign, for the good of the GOP?

Nah, I don’t think so either.

Actually this plant is owned by a contractor to Apple and has been in operation since 2013, otherwise quite an accurate tweet for Trump.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

The high paying jobs at Apple are in Cupertino.

Production of electronics/electricals like being done in Texas, doesn’t require a high school diploma. That is unless an advanced degree is necessary to put the same 10 screws attaching chinese made parts to a chinese made box over and over again, all day, 5 days a week, 250 days a year.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

From Trump's Fox News interview this morning;
Quote:
"But this [Ukraine] ambassador [Marie Yovanovitch] that, you know, everybody says is so wonderful, she wouldn't hang my picture in the embassy, OK?
She's in charge of the embassy. She wouldn't hang it."
WTF! Hanging up Trump's picture is so important?

Of course, not that it is important, there is no evidence that she wouldn't hang Trump's picture in the embassy.

That's hilarious and sad at the same time. The ambassador him or herself probably doesn't hang photos in the embassy or decide who does. Odds are his pic went up shortly after he took office but he wanted her to have one on her desk or something.

Nah! Demand was a picture tattooed over her heart

Meanwhile, former National Security Adviser John Bolton, a constant if unseen presence during the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, reappeared on Twitter Friday after a months-long public hiatus.

Bolton said that his Twitter account had been suppressed since leaving the administration in September and suggested the White House had done so out of concern about what he might say.

Gets more like the Dallas series every day

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

The eagerly awaited report from the DOJ Inspector General about the origins of the Russian Probe; the FISA request to monitor Page.

The following is some of what is published about the leaks so may not be accurate!
Quote:
It debunks claims that the so-called Steele dossier compiled by the former British spy Christopher Steele was used by officials to launch the investigation

The report disputes allegations that individuals like Comey, McCabe and Strzok acted on biases towards the president.

A lower-level lawyer is under criminal investigation for altering an email that bureau officials then incorporated in their effort to renew a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant on Carter Page. This was a renewal, not the original request.
Source

Overall, likely to be a disappointment for the GOP but, no doubt, the White House spin doctors will make it sound like a major rebuke.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Ooohh
Quote:
An indicted associate of Rudy Giuliani, President Trump's personal lawyer, is willing to inform Congress about a meeting between the top Republican Nunes on the House Intelligence Committee and a former Ukrainian prosecutor.

"Mr. Parnas learned from former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Victor Shokin that Nunes had met with Shokin in Vienna last December," Joseph A. Bondy, the attorney for Lev Parnassaid.

Shokin was dismissed from his post in 2016 after a pressure campaign from Western leaders, including Biden.

Bondy’s discussions with CNN mark the first time Nunes has been implicated in the effort to dig up dirt on Biden.

Trump must be really frightened of having Biden as his opponent?

I'm sure the last one wasn't an exception in this line either - nor will the next one be out of line ;-)

This one is just not too shy about it. In typical, American, all-you-can-eat, don't-be-shy-style ;-)

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

When a draft dodger interferes with US naval discipline then it will turn out "badly".
Now the navy leaders are threatening to resign

Quote:
Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

The Prosecutors who lost the case against SEAL Eddie Gallagher (who I released from solitary confinement so he could fight his case properly), were ridiculously given a Navy Achievement Medal.
Not only did they lose the case, they had difficulty with respect to information that may have been obtained from opposing lawyers and for giving immunity in a totally incompetent fashion.
I have directed the Secretary of the Navy Richard Spencer & Chief of Naval Operations John Richardson to immediately withdraw and rescind the awards I am very happy for Eddie Gallagher and his family!

The Navy will NOT be taking away Warfighter and Navy Seal Eddie Gallagher’s Trident Pin. This case was handled very badly from the beginning. Get back to business!

Quote:
Navy leaders this week threatened to resign if a review of Navy SEAL Edward Gallagher is halted over a tweet from President Trump, according to The New York Times.

The secretary of the Navy and the admiral who leads the SEALs both threatened to resign or be fired if plans to hold a review to decide if Gallagher should be expelled in a war crimes case after the president said he opposed Gallagher’s dismissal.

Imagine how ridiculous it would have been had the Navy rocked up to NBC and asked the advice of their "The Apprentice" star trump on how to prosecute war crimes.

How is it any different today?

Defense Secretary Mark Esper on Sunday asked for the resignation of Navy Secretary Richard Spencer over his handling of a controversial war crimes case.

Esper told The Washington Post in a statement Sunday that he was “deeply troubled" by reports that Spencer had reached out to White House officials promising that an accused Navy SEAL would be allowed to retire as a SEAL despite his conviction for posing with the corpse of a slain enemy combatant.
