Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

The question before the forum (tho hell knows it's been answered by the man himself over and over again) is 'Will Trump be a Good President?' lets see what the experts think

"The Siena College Research Institute (SCRI) Survey of U.S. Presidents is based on responses from 157 presidential scholars, historians and political scientists that responded via mail or web to an invitation to participate"

Source

Summary - Spanky enters at 42nd, the only surprise is that it wasn't lower.

I am sure they had a nice chat over the all American (breakfast)!
And what is it you're trying to point out?

Because Pence does not agree with the Irish prime minister's love life he should not talk to him?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Quote:
The US Republican-led Senate has approved a bill to end US support for the Saudi-led coalition war in Yemen.

The bipartisan vote was 54 to 46, and is a rebuke to President Donald Trump's support of Saudi Arabia and its leader despite recent tensions.

Mr Trump has vowed to veto the resolution should it pass through the Democrat-led House.
Source

It is of course highly likely to pass the House then it will be the second Congress approved resolution against Trump this week.
Also bubbling up is the resolution to publish Special Counsel Mueller report at the end of his probe. It passed the House but is stuck in the Senate.

Interestingly, Varadkar and his partner were met by Pence and Pence's sister, not his wife. Is that something to do with the fact Mother works at a Christian school that refuses to employ LGBTQ staff?

Ignore the first part, it gets much more interesting when they talk about border crisis with gov officials in charge of border security.

Makes me wonder how long it will take mediasapiens to learn how to link to youtube vids. Doesn't speak well for his intellectual flexibility.

LOL. Actually I just posted about that in the first world problem.
Only - I claim - my criticism was more productive and less personal.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Quote:
Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

“New evidence that the Obama era team of the FBI, DOJ & CIA were working together to Spy on (and take out) President Trump, all the way back in 2015.”
A transcript of Peter Strzok’s testimony is devastating.
Hopefully the Mueller Report will be covering this. @OANN @foxandfriends
People who have actually read the transcript claim it does not support the Trump/GOP narrative.

So where does the truth lie?
I did try to read it but it is 300 pages long so I soon gave up.
I did try to search it for keywords like 2015 or Obama but it is not searchable, probably a scan?

Anyways. Something makes me doubt that mediasapiens will notice your post, let alone think it's about them. Yes my post is personal, IMO a fair thing considering his nick. His posts don't are no help on that either.

It's definitely true. If you exclude everyone who has ever run for the presidency, the FBI and CIA have never, EVER done background checks on potential presidential candidates before.

It was not about mediasapiens, his dead-youtube-link was only the last drop in the bucket. (or what ever )

I can say nothing to the person you bash but what does "His posts don't are no help on that either" mean?

Hmmm, I like that. Not heard it before.

So you might be inclined to check out the idea on how to insert a video on EF.

As far as I'm concerned just post the link to that video because we're kind of sick of unwanted images. If I usually read what a certain user posts, I'll make an effort to double click you know.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Quote:
Documents unsealed this week lend credence to a theory about Russian election meddling that was first put forward in the Steele Trump-Russia dossier

The most salacious allegations in the Steele dossier remain unverified to this day. But the claims that form the bulk of the memos have held up over time, or at least proved to be partially true.

Gubarev sued BuzzFeed in 2017 and sought damages for defamation by publishing the dossier. As part of the legal process, some of the key players in the dossier saga were deposed, including Steele.
The judge threw out the case.
Source

So the Trump/GOP claims the dossier has been completely discredited are not true.

Attacking the deceased GOP Senator

Spreading the fake and totally discredited Dossier “is unfortunately a very dark stain against John McCain.” Ken Starr, Former Independent Counsel.
He had far worse “stains” than this, including thumbs down on repeal and replace after years of campaigning to repeal and replace!
