    I predict the ambassador will leave Washington before Trump does.

    The wacky Ambassador that the U.K. foisted upon the United States is not someone we are thrilled with, a very stupid guy. He should speak to his country, and Prime Minister May, about their failed Brexit negotiation, and not be upset with my criticism of how badly it was handled. I told Theresa May how to do that deal, but she went her own foolish way-was unable to get it done. A disaster! I don’t know the Ambassador but have been told he is a pompous fool. Tell him the USA now has the best Economy & Military anywhere in the World, by far and they are both only getting bigger, better and stronger.....Thank you, Mr. President!

    I know.

    It's hilarious the way Trump can call another human being a 'pompous fool' without any shame!

    And reinforcing every comment of the ambassador with every tweet he makes.

    Dumb, Dumber and Trumpest!

    Another twist in the General Flynn case

    https://dailycaller.com/2019/07/09/m...kish-lobbying/

    Hello lardy, help us out man. You're convinced that he's guilty, so can explain what is going on here?

    Maybe you could also comment on Felix Sater, who you've claimed was a Russian spy?

    Judge Rejects Government Effort To Classify Michael Flynn As ‘Co-Conspirator’ In Turkish Lobbying Case

    A federal judge in Virginia on Tuesday struck down prosecutors’ efforts to characterize Michael Flynn as a co-conspirator with his former lobbying partner, who faces trial on charges that he secretly lobbied for the Turkish government.

    Judge Anthony Trenga said in a court filing that federal prosecutors failed to provide enough evidence to show that Flynn acted as a co-conspirator with Bijan Rafiekian, a former executive at Flynn’s consulting company, Flynn Intel Group.

    The globalist pro-EU open-border crowd are only interested in the destruction of Britain AND Europe. They attack Justice Kavanaugh while giving Jeffrey Epstein a free pass. We are talking about ideologues here, and the real question is are they aware of what they are doing, or are they the useful idiots? Pelosi came out today and said she doesn't recognise national borders or sovereignty rights, as they clash with a global society. Finally the Obama/Merkel plan is out in the open. I was mocked when I said Brexit was about globalism, and yet again I am proved right.

    Did he say create a crisis and promise lots of free stuff? He could have been describing the currents Democratic Party! They have already brainwashed an entire generation, so we are moving into the final phase.

    It's fascinating that Yuri could accurately describe many of current posters on here, how could he know the future? Surely it was random events that got us to where we are now? If it was all planned, then that is pretty scary!

    Re: The Donald Trump thread

    Anyone commented on Trump telling four Americans to go back to their country because they were a) people of colour and b) critical of actions carried out in the name of the USA?

    The following analysis seems to sum it up quite nicely:

    Remember how Mexicans were Rapists and Drug dealers, how there were "good people" on both sides of the argument when white supremacists marched in Charlottesville, and how the President didn't see why America should allow more people in from "shithole" countries in Africa.
    (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-48997008)

    What sort of world where people vote for a person so happy to use racist language as part of their political strategy? I wouldn't even mind having a Republican President for four more years as long as it's not this faux-Republican, racist, twitter-bot.

    He’s got a big base that think he’s some sort of Demigod and no Republican wants to challenge him therefore he feels emboldened.

    I personally think he’s a colossal loathsome prick but it’s working for him.....sadly I should say.

    Agree. I can imagine that there a lot of red-necked, "hunt 'em, shoot 'em, hang 'em" xenophobic yanks over there who idolise him because he says what they are already thinking. What a country, what a political system!

    Re: The Donald Trump thread

    Boris f**king Johnson has even condemned Trump about his racist attack on the American Democratic representatives - which side will Wales Bales choose in this argument?

    "Mr Johnson said: "If you are the leader of a great, multi-racial, multi-cultural society, you simply cannot use that kind of language about sending people back to where they came from.

    "That went out decades and decades ago and thank heavens for that."

    then

    Mr Johnson said: "I simply can't understand how a leader of that country can come to say it."

    Pressed again, he added: "You can take from what I said what I think about President Trump's words."

    Trump is playing the Democrats at their own race game

    President’s hostile tweets turned his opponents’ obsession with identity politics against them


    Share

    When I was a child, my mother and I were told in a supermarket to “go back where you came from”. This puzzled me greatly. My mother and I were born and bred in London. It was my first experience of anti-Jewish prejudice. The bigotry was unambiguous. Because our assailant perceived we were Jews, she was telling us we didn’t belong in Britain.

    Now a storm has erupted in America over tweets by President Trump in which he apparently took aim at four young ethnic minority congresswomen: Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley. They are known as The Squad because of the way they operate as a far-left minority caucus.

    For months, American politics has been convulsed over Trump’s attempts to stop illegal immigration across the Mexican border. In his tweet, Trump called out unnamed “progressives”, who “originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe”, for “loudly and viciously” telling America how its government should be run. “Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came?”

    This language was undeniably offensive, unacceptable and — if he was indeed referring to all four women — factually wrong. Only Ilhan Omar, who was born in Somalia, is not native to America. For the other three, who are variously of Palestinian, Puerto Rican and African-American heritage, America is where they were born.

    Trump may have been thinking particularly of Omar but tweeted with his customary disregard for detail. Even so, by any normal standards this was dismaying behaviour by a president. But this is not a normal president. He uses offensive language to speak in a kind of code to his supporters, and to set a trap for his foes who fail to understand the code and promptly fall into the snare.


    This is precisely what has happened. The Democratic house speaker, Nancy Pelosi, said Trump’s tweet showed he’d always planned on “making America white again”.

    No he hadn’t; nor had he been making a point in his tweet about race or colour. For his critics have omitted to note that, after telling these congresswomen to go and sort out their presumed countries of origin, he said: “Then come back and tell us how to do it.”

    In other words, his point was about their behaviour, specifically their opposition to his “racist” immigration policy. Clearly, he considers this akin to treachery from politicians who, between them, have taken positions that are anti-American, anti-white and anti-Jewish. What’s more, he knows that millions of Americans will be thinking exactly the same thing.

    Thus he further tweeted: “So sad to see the Democrats sticking up for people who speak so badly of our Country . . . Whenever confronted, they call their adversaries, including Nancy Pelosi, ‘RACIST’. Their disgusting language and the many terrible things they say about the United States must not be allowed to go unchallenged.”

    Subsequently he doubled down again, asking: “When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologise to our country . . . for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said.”

    It became plain that he was twisting the knife into the writhing body of the Democratic Party. He was using The Squad to ram home that the Democrats have been taken over by extremists. Indeed, for offensiveness it’s hard to beat Ocasio-Cortez, who called the US border detention centres “concentration camps”.

    For bigotry, look no further than Omar, who has accused American Jews of dual loyalties and buying political influence in the interests of Israel. For anti-Americanism and playing the race card, there’s the support by Pressley and Tlaib for an article accusing the Declaration of Independence of being “sexist, racist and prejudiced”, not to mention Pressley’s own racially divisive remark that there’s “no need for black faces that don’t want to be a black voice”.

    Now racial identity politics is consuming its own. Ocasio-Cortez has accused Nancy Pelosi of “singling out newly elected women of colour” simply because Pelosi finally lost patience with The Squad after they failed to vote last month for her border aid package.

    Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, accused Democrats who backed this bill of “being hell-bent to do to black and brown people today what the old Southern Democrats did in the Forties”. Yet he in turn was attacked by the House Democratic caucus over his claim that congresswoman Sharice Davids had voted in ways that “enable a racist system”. Raged the caucus: “Why is he explicitly singling out a Native American woman of colour?”

    The Democratic Party is now being boiled alive by the very racial politics it has encouraged.

    This is the pot that Trump is now deftly stirring. Every time he is called racist, his poll numbers climb among the millions who decode such attacks on him as un-American treachery by those who want to destroy border controls and thus the very concept of citizenship. The insult is also being used so indiscriminately it has all but lost its meaning as a description of truly evil intent.

    Trump is a man who plays the political game by completely different rules. Those who refuse to understand this will lose not just the people’s vote but the moral high ground, too.

    Re: The Donald Trump thread

    I used to like Melanie Phillips - about 30/35 years ago when she was a fairly radical columnist specialising in education and Thatcher-baiting.

    Then she did a complete flip in about 5 years (like Peter Hitchen and similar) and reinvented herself as Daily Mail Woman.

    Not surprised you have quoted her latest attack on opponents of Trump. I do agree with her when she says 'Trump is a man who plays the political game by completely different rules' - but apart from that it is the usual bile.
