You know what I think about most when it comes to politics these days?

That our federal government is currently 20 trillion dollars in debt.

To me that is obscene.

BTW, I'm blaming both the dems and the repubs for putting us there

This should be job #1.

All the rest is noise.

I actually really like John Kelly and think he'll help settle things down. Firing Scaramucci was the right call. Unfortunately for Kelly, unless Trump himself leads by example and ceases to do things like throwing his loyal and very popular DOJ under the bus for doing the right thing because he wasn't there to protect his shitbag son-in-law, then he won't get enthusiastic support from moderates.

Posux: Many of us who have supported Trump know he his flaws. But that's not what the left has been focused on. Russia was never an effective target.

However, when it comes to his communications director being stupid enough to act like a child in front of a left wing rag reporter or any of his policy short-comings, fire away. That is why we live in democratic republics where those issues can be discussed.

I just wish the left had been as critical as Obama's policies as the right is with the insanity in Trump's latest rants.

Per CNN, Kelly was apparently upset over Trump firing Comey and considered resigning in process. Don't know how much to uy into that, but assuming its true, and what he's done with Mooch, it looks like a strong pragmatic leader. That can't be anything but a good thing.... though I doubt it'll mesh well with Trump's rather reactionary style.

Re: Mooch, I'm wondering if he was drunk when he had that expletive-filled interview that got so much press. Wasn't it directly after some dinner that he didn't want being revealed?

Canucko - did you hear/read any of Brower's testimony? (https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2017 /07/bill-browders-testimo ny-to-the-senate-judiciar y-committee/534864/). Sounds like the fish are jumping into the boat to me.....

Fusion GPS was also behind stories that falsely claimed the planned parenthood videos were manipulated.

You take this one, Kanrok. Maybe you can explain to them the burden of proof for collusion even if it were a crime so that I don't have to.

If I was Trump, I would be praying for a leak that he invested in some Russian gas giant 10 years ago or even some hint that he was involved with Uranium One... anything to distract from actual real scandals such as what we are seeing now from Priebus/Scary-mucci and his public feud with Sessions.

All I'm getting at is the left came out with reports saying the videos were edited, then the right came back saying they weren't (with their own reports)..... has any reputable organization weighed in at all?

Bro you are becoming a homer similar to the homer you were back in the day. You are comparing Trump's tweets to Obama's policies?

Did you just call THE NEW YORKER a rag?

The left has been focused on Russia. Yes, true. At the very least, information has come to the forefront that we all needed to know. Don't you agree?

Posux, have you ever criticized Obama?

I just criticized Trump one thread ago. You'll even see criticisms within this thread.

What about Obama? Did you ever call him out for his foreign policy, debt-laden plans, sluggish recovery (the same way liberals went after conservatives in Canada) or for his own deceptive BS?

On Russia, I'm not sure if meddling is the same as collusion. Russia definitely meddled in the election, but that does not even come close to the supposed "collusion" narrative between Putin and Trump that was ancillary to the entire Russian narrative. That was the stick that was supposed to incite rage behind every single Hillary supporter/voter. That level of conspiracy has never been proven, and neither has one single ounce of proof been offered to show that Trump made any political compromises to Russia in exchange for damaging information.

Posux stating guys are coming around... LOL.

I don't mind him canning people. If anything, Scaramucci was a shit hire.

Illegal immigration way down. Deporting illegal criminals like wildfire. Of course, CNN is sympathizing with MS-13.

The jobless rate (4.4%) is at a 16-year low.

Stock markets have hit record highs.

One SCOTUS down... one to come.

Healthcare will eventually get done.

The wall will eventually get done.

Rolled back energy regulations.

Lobbying ban for political employees... lifetime from foreign entities.

Renegotiating trade deals.

But wittle Posux, and all his Cali nutjob liberal friends, want to focus on the static... not what's actually been done and will be done.

BTW... 5-0 on special elections. Another "surprise."

Why is it when these same things were happening under Obama the numbers were fake?....

Every conservative in here was crying that the market was over inflated and going to crash and real unemployment was 20%....

"In 2015, when the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released sting videos showing Planned Parenthood staffers agreeing to sell aborted babies for profit, Fusion GPS compiled a misleading report that suggested the videos were false.

The firm's "forensic report" attempted to discredit the videos as manipulations, selectively edited clips that twisted Planned Parenthood staff out of context. Ironically, buried in the report was the concession that there was no "widespread evidence of substantive video manipulation."

Even so, many media outlets bought the insinuations. Politico's story: "Report for Planned Parenthood finds sting videos manipulated." The New York Times went with "Planned Parenthood Videos Were Altered, Analysis Finds.""
