Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Trump seems to be in meltdown today!
He started a tweetstorm at 5:20 local time this morning, so far 19 tweets in one hour.

It is believed he is very frustrated by the fact that White House people were reported positive for coronavirus which makes his "now safe to open the country" claim look rather sick (to coin a phrase)!

Meanwhile, it is reported over 80,000 dead in the US due to coronavirus; far more, for example, than died in the Vietnam war.

There is an alternative theory that the twitter storm is due to Trump's concerns that the Health expert Fauci at a Senate committee review today will speak against opening the US.

From the thin-skinned Narcissistic President today!

Remember this, every Governor who has sky high approval on their handling of the Coronavirus, and I am happy for them all, could in no way have gotten those numbers, or had that success, without me and the Federal Governments help.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Indeed.

"US President Donald Trump has said a sobering warning by his top infectious diseases expert about lifting pandemic restrictions too soon was unacceptable.

He accused Dr Anthony Fauci of wanting "to play all sides of the equation" in his testimony to lawmakers on Tuesday.

The president said he was especially dissatisfied with Dr Fauci's caution around reopening schools too quickly.

Covid-19 has infected nearly 1.4 million people in the US and killed 84,000, while ravaging the economy."

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-52656959

Considering schools will shut down for the summer in a couple of weeks anyway I can't see the point in opening them now.

Plus

Ever so slow swamp draining
Quote:
Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) will temporarily step aside as chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee amid an FBI investigation into his [alleged insider] stock sales, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) announced Thursday.

Standby for a Trump tweet claiming this is all an Obama/DOJ/FBI/Deep State plot.

In the real world, it is likely there is something solid to the allegations since Burr's decision came as a surprise to the committee so it was not a long-planned decision

What's more damaging is the long-term effect this will have on the government structure. If this Justice Dept, Supreme Court, etc. simply rubber-stamp everything Trump wants, the next president (D or R) will see nothing wrong with the same pattern and use this administration's moves as justification for further power grabs. It sets a dangerous and divisive precedent.

It's an honest question any official in this administration should consider - would you support/take the same action if the current president was a Democrat? I kind of doubt it.
This pattern started loooong before Trump. He is not the first nor will he be the last. How many republicans have quit or been fired under Trump? More than a few. One could say he actually is draining the swamp?
I dont know whats actually happening (keeping my head in the sand) but according to my sources there is a MASSIVE opperation going on involving the CIA, FBI and the DOJ. It could be against Trump, but I doubt it. If it was the media would have already convicted him in the court of public opinion. The fact that this investigation is on media blackout speaks volumes really.

Something bigley, or should I say HUUUUUGE is about to go down. There are rumors and conspiracies but I dont know if any are true or not. Again, if it was against Trump it would be on the news 24/7. So maybe, just maybe the rumors hold some truth??? I dont know. But I do know that if they are true, Trump wont even need to campaign to get re-elected. But he will because his ego can never pass an opportunity to be on a stage.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I also heard that quite a few federal judges that tend to have one sided decisions have been moved, or removed, "like chess pieces"* Its too bad we cant see the whole board. Looks like a really good game.

* actual quote from my source within the California D.O.J.

Judges hold their seats until they resign, die, or are removed from office. Consequently replacing a federal judge is not easy; in the last twenty years, only two judges have been impeached and then removed.

I suggest you ask your source within the California D.O.J. for more details to make his claim credible.

Usually, US Presidents get elected for a second term so the chances of Trump being reelected are high.
The only US Presidents who did not win a second term in recent times are Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, and George H. W. Bush.

If there is a MASSIVE operation going on involving the CIA, FBI and the DOJ then it is likely to be successful since those organisations have some very clever and ruthless people.
On the other side, those organisations all leak like sieves since they are full of both Republican and Democrats who would push back against the other side's conspiracies so we would know what is happening; the more people involved the higher the chances of leaks.

I never said anything about impeachment. Yes district judges can be moved and even removed without impeachment. It may only temporarily or preceeding a trial. All I know is some are being "moved like chess pieces".

Regarding your next post about leaking. Thats how conspiracies start. People with a conscience wanting to speak out. Problem with civilians is no one believes them unless they have the media hold their hand to the truth, even if its a politician, president, or even the director of the C.I.A. The first people to question 9-11 were the first responders themselves. People forget that.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Quote:
State Department Inspector General Steve Linick was ousted Friday evening by Trump, becoming the latest government watchdog to be removed from his post.

Rep. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.), the chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said he had recently learned that Linick had recently opened up an investigation into Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and suggested the firing was retaliation by the administration.

Trump is making steady progress in removing people who have an oversight and reporting duty.

BTW, Rudy Giuliani has gone very quiet. One time you could not look anywhere without seeing Rudy claiming he had strong evidence of Ukraine and the Bidens.

No, they can't. Or are you saying that Trump has had those judges he doesn't like assassinated?

Of the four “black boxes” three were found. Only one was readable, the other two were too badly damaged.

One very damaged passport of one hijacker was found amongst the debris in the street.

Four out of eight were found. None found at WTC, but a very damaged passport was. Sounds legit

Carry on.

It is never too late. A piece of the landing gear was found eleven years after the attack, wedged out of sight in a narrow gap between 50 Murray Street and 51 Park Place, three blocks away.

One in baggage that didn't make the flight and 2 from flight 93, the one that didn't crash into a building so not exactly unexpected. The last one was from the WTC. Odd but given the explosion happened behind the pilots not completely implausible.

Quote:
Four of the hijackers’ passports have survived in whole or in part. Two were recovered from the crash site of United Airlines Flight 93 in Pennsylvania. One belonged to a hijacker on American Airlines Flight 11. A passerby picked it up and gave it to an NYPD detective shortly before the World Trade Center towers collapsed. A fourth passport was recovered from luggage that did not make it from a Portland flight to Boston onto the connecting flight, which was American Airlines Flight 11.

What the [expletive deleted] does any of this have to do with Trump?

IIRC he was on a rooftop in New Jersey on the day.
