Secondly they relied on the States providing information to prove the States themselves had done a bad job which info would never ever be provided!

Been a fun Trump day
The voter fraud commission (VFC) work will be taken over by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
Except the VFC is refusing to hand over data to the DHS, they say it is sensitive

Snip from the article:
Quote:
"The better way to move forward would be to have the Department of Homeland Security do it within an executive branch agency rather than use the mechanism of a commission under the Federal Advisory Commission Act," the defunct panel's co-chair Kris Kobach told NPR on Thursday.
Spoken by the same guy that didn't want the commission to be subject to the FACA when he was in charge of the commission, and an individual responsible for kicking thousands of eligible voters off the rolls in Kansas.

OMG, you mean Raheem tweeted an opinion?

It goes to prove that a team of jews, muslims, gay catholics, and a hollywood diva make for very poor fascist nazis at Breitbart. Why can't they agree to a singular opinion like the Guardian?

meh, they'll probably get back together in a few months with Trump and have a laugh about all this. They all know this is bigger than any or all of them combined.

Donald J. Trump‏@realDonaldTrump

Now that Russian collusion, after one year of intense study, has proven to be a total hoax on the American public, the Democrats and their lapdogs, the Fake News Mainstream Media, are taking out the old Ronald Reagan playbook and screaming mental stability and intelligence.....
Probably Reagan is not the best person for a genius to refer to as sadly Ronald was diagnosed with Alzheimers after leaving office and according to several people (including his son) displayed symptoms when in office.

Of course, Russian collusion has not yet proven to be a hoax; the investigation is still underway.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

One of the Trump fans' paradoxes....

Quote:
A senior Church of England bishop has lambasted conservative evangelical Christians in the US for their “uncritical support” of Donald Trump, urging them to reflect on how their endorsement of the president relates to their faith.

Paul Bayes, the bishop of Liverpool, said “self-styled evangelicals” risked bringing the word evangelical into disrepute, and added there was no justification for Christians contradicting God’s teaching to protect the poor and the weak.

Bayes told the Guardian: “Some of the things that have been said by religious leaders seem to collude with a system that marginalises the poor, a system which builds walls instead of bridges, a system which says people on the margins of society should be excluded, a system which says we’re not welcoming people any more into our country.

Are you suggesting that there are no gay Trump supporters? I can see, in some ways, how he could be a bit of a gay icon. A rough diamond with flamboyant hair...

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I'm watching Wolff on a recorded version of Meet the Press right now. TBH he's not convincing me he knows what the heck he's talking about and he has no answer to the inconsistencies and errors. And his duckface pout is annoying.

Trump maintains he is a Genius. The truly psychologically sick don't know they are sick.

Trump gay? Interesting thought, never considered that!

Three very attractive wives as cover.
Separate bedrooms with, it is claimed, a locked door on Trump's.
Practically all male Cabinet and senior advisors.
Excessive interest in personal appearance; hair, suit steaming inflight.
Ensuring best camera angles when photographed.
Macho image, pussy grabbing, aggressive treatment of women.
Small hands

Nothing conclusive but one cannot immediately rule this thought out

Maybe we could get his photograph checked, look here!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

38 GOP members of Congress planning to retire (or having already retired) versus 17 Democrats.

Of course, 13 GOPs are planning to seek another political office (or have new roles in the Trump administration) and 3 are retiring due to scandals. Nevertheless this is very high compared with the average of 11 GOPs retiring per Congress over the last 40 years and there is still time this Congress for more to retire..

he excels in being Donald Trump. imagine that on the last day of his presidency (in 6.5 years from now), he stops with words like "I've played this role of a mad man for so long just to be and become a president, now I'll be normal again", then he is indeed a genius.

don't see that happen though.

LOL, I went and watched. It's not his fault, it's his lips. If he were female most guys would luv it, specially in connection with this wide eyed look

But I sure hope he writes better than he talks

As odious, worthless, and incompetent as Trump is, the opioid crisis in the US is by no means his doing and wouldn't be easy for anyone to solve, even if they were a qualified individual and not a petulant gibbering manbaby.
