Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Holy shit! He's at it again with his 'Enemy of the People' crap.

I swear he won't rest until news reporters are murdered in the US, but even then, he'll just blame them and say they should have had armed body guards with them. This is intolerable.

There is great anger in our Country caused in part by inaccurate, and even fraudulent, reporting of the news. The Fake News Media, the true Enemy of the People, must stop the open & obvious hostility & report the news accurately & fairly. That will do much to put out the flame...

I was talking with an old, much loved and respected friend last night, about the climate of debate and the rhetoric coming from the White House. He's an American uni lecturer, former US army airborne and Vietnam vet. He said... "I've never seen anything like this, ever."

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

"Had a very good conversation with the newly elected President of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, who won his race by a substantial margin. We agreed that Brazil and the United States will work closely together on Trade, Military and everything else! Excellent call, wished him congrats!"
Donald Trump

"The election of a fascist, pro-torture, anti-LGBT, anti-human rights, authoritarian, climate change denier in Brazil's democracy of more than 200 million is catastrophic. We must take the resurgence of the far right seriously - and beat its ugly narrative of hate and division."
David Lammy (Labour MP for Tottenham)

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I like how the pearl clutching " them muslims" posters are super absent on these political induced terrorist acts.


If all this had been done by ISIS .. the amount of posting would excede that mythical 2%


but I digress...

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

US consumer spending increased 0.3% in Sept, while personal income edged up 0.2% — the smallest gain since June 2017

Source

I am sure the 1% are doing great but how much the 99% benefit from Trump's growing economy is doubtful.

The personal savings rate slipped to 6.2 percent in September, the lowest level in 2018, which is not a good sign.

Despite a big jump this morning the Dow is still hovering around the same level as at this year's start having lost all 2018 gains.
It might jump much higher or crash down again, uncertain times.

I was just thinking that, and also, that they would be demanding all muslims collectively condemn the terrorist attacks, so are all the Spanky fans going to condemn the bomber and the rhetoric that drove him?


Or are they going to keep on believing it's a false flag attack.

Can you reasonably explain in any way how Trump - who has just moved the US embassy to Jerusalem, whose son-in-law is an orthodox Jew and whose daughter Ivanka has converted to Judaism - is responsible for this attack?

I suppose when you lie in bed with Neo-Nazi dogs, you sometimes get anti-Semitic fleas.

Stochastic terrorism. Emboldens the domestic terrorists with rhetoric and makes them feel it is acceptable to carry out terrorist acts - like this one, the bomb and the killing of two African Americans last week. Put another way, stirring the pot.

In fact, the guy on Saturday was critical of Trump's links to Judiasm.

And the truth is, just because you have Jewish relatives, doesn't mean you're not antisemitic. I have plenty.

So Trump, who never says anything against Jews, is responsible for an attack on Jews? Because rhetoric.

My father's family was Jewish. I have plenty of antisemetic relatives on the other side.

He's probably also responsible for all those attacks on Jews and synagogues in France, Germany and elsewhere. Even the ones that happened before he was elected.

We can't possibly admit that our entire culture is saturated with anti-semitism.

No. It's Trump.

As this was an act of political terrorism rather than religious, surely a better comparison would be to the attack by James Hodgkinson on the Republican Congressmen last year?

Something something Muslims.

In Europe synagogues are guarded by actual armed guards. Trumps fault obvs.
