Always been strange that a serial adulterer and liar got so much much support from the Evangelicals. How much influence this magazine with a claimed circulation of only 130,000 will have is hard to estimate.
But they do state that they must remain accountable to a higher order.

Clinton was impeached because he lied under oath.
Allegedly. He was acquitted in his trial.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

The video following the one you linked, marton, was much better:

"Senator Warren, you will be the oldest president ever inaugurated".
not a blink of an eye after, her answer was:
"I will also be the youngest woman ever inauguarated".

Love it!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

That great scientist Trump explaining the problem of wind energy;
Quote:
“I never understood wind,” Trump said, according to a report of his speech from Mediaite.
“I know windmills very much, I have studied it better than anybody. I know it is very expensive. They are made in China and Germany mostly, very few made here, almost none, but they are manufactured, tremendous — if you are into this — tremendous fumes and gases are spewing into the atmosphere. You know we have a world, right?”

“So the world is tiny compared to the universe. So tremendous, tremendous amount of fumes and everything. You talk about the carbon footprint, fumes are spewing into the air, right spewing, whether it is China or Germany, is going into the air,” the president added.

He also said, "A windmill will kill many bald eagles.”

Typical incoherent Trump rant!

Meanwhile his ex-national security adviser Bolton does some backstabbing!
Quote:
In an interview with Axios's Jonathan Swan, the former White House official said that Trump's policy of blocking North Korea from obtaining such weapons was a "rhetorical policy" that the administration would soon be forced to admit had failed.

"The idea that we are somehow exerting maximum pressure on North Korea is just unfortunately not true," Bolton told the news outlet.

"We're now nearly three years into the administration with no visible progress toward getting North Korea to make the strategic decision to stop pursuing deliverable nuclear weapons," he added.

He also attacked Trump's comments about short-range North Korean nuclear missiles, which he pointed out posed a danger to multiple U.S. allies as well as U.S. troops stationed in the region.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Giuliani seems to be displaying the same symptoms as his major client
Quote:
President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani said he is “more of a Jew” than George Soros, a major Democratic donor and Holocaust survivor.

Giuliani claimed in a New York Magazine interview published Monday that ousted Ambassador to Ukraine Maria Yovanovitch is “controlled” by Soros.

“He put all four ambassadors there,” he reportedly said. “And he’s employing the FBI agents.”

It's probably this master and his dog thing. Giuliani using the famous Swiss facial cream yet?

Actually it is funny how we manage to make money out of anything .... even a disastrous American president.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

New record for Trump, he deleted his tweet where he misspelled "impeachment" in under a quarter of an hour.

Meanwhile, the Saudis have sentenced 5 people to death for the Jamal Khashoggi murder but nobody senior in the royal management hierarchy.
Despite worldwide condemnation of this charade, the White House remains silent.
Not so nice for the murderers who were just obeying orders; which is not much of an excuse but may be grounds for a lighter sentence.

Well, this is what happens when a forum is open to the public.

1991 .... I have noticed you are one of these "good ol' days" folks. Matches with digging up all ancient threads here.

I'm sorry, today's world does not hold any entertainment for you nor piques your interest. On the bright side you can reminisce until Alzheimer hits you. Once it does you can still dwell in old times, thanks to the excessive collecting mania of google.
See? You'll be fine. Guess wishing you a happy new year would be cruel, more new, undesired ways and things lurking in 2020.
