Sorry? You seem to have accidentally not written anything worthwhile.

Which one is wrong?

That "chain of command" nonsense is just more utter nonsense from the Trump admin.

The Commander In Chief can go whichever way he pleases in the command structure because he is at the very top of that structure.

I agree that the top should allowed to " wander around" the command structure.

Hopeful Trump decides that where the jet planes are parked and need to be reorganized. He could spend the 3 years shuffle them around instead of insulting foreign nations.

The one with the 'e'.

And your claim that GCHQ didn't issue a denial. That was also wrong. Factually incorrect. Not correlating with reality. A completely unambiguous state of what we would describe as 'wrong-ness'. As in, not interpretable as the opposite of 'wrong'.

Sadly for me, there are members on this site right here! on ATS! that utterly baffle me, and make no sense, yet seem to be unfailingly well-received.

Isn't that weird?

This is something that Trump said recently, verbatim:

That speech was hot for about two or three hour after the speech was made, because they came up with other things having to do with other people that they shouldn't have been able to do and they shouldn't have done, but they did it.

And you know what I'm talking about.


Here is what I'm interpreting to readers who don't understand that (I don't really understand it, either, but I'm going to try here....)

That speech was all over the media for two or three hours until someone brought up something else that somebody else did and then cut to that, instead of staying focused on me, and those people who grabbed the media's attention should not have done what they did and the media should definitely not have interrupted my adulations and airtime with it.

Anyone else have a translation for us?

(In person on-the-fly-right-now spontaneous bilingual stuff is called "interpretation."
Writing what one thinks is an accurate rendering of other things written down in another language is "translation.")

Lets face it the guy has a hard on for disparaging Obama, and to what end?

End of the day this crap seems like simple misdirection to me.

Have to say i kind of agree with you .

Obama refused to buy a red hat
It may be that simple.

I appreciate the effort there but I think you miss our very general point.

We're not anti-Trump.
We're anti idiot.

That is way many are us out here are anti Trump and and anti Hillary.

In today's news, Trump said some things others didn't like. Fascinating.

You are right he is consistent.

We should remain consistent in rejecting anything idiotic.

Simple put that is what the British did.

I have been to several areas of the site.

For example in the aviation area we are hot on the trail of a super secret bomber project.

I do agree lots are here just for the politics right now but i bet the majority were here for another reason first.

Most off us realize that what we are participating here is blogging. We acknowledge that our words and comments are not news in any way.

This is the point that people are are missing when they use bloggers or any opinion based TV commentary as a source.

Opinions are not news. News is at its core an action of some sort that occurred in the world.

I am going to make up some titles as an examples.

I am not trying to create fake news I am just providing examples.

Two cars collide on Highway 2, 3 people killed.

Liberal government delays buying fancy jets to do analysis of life time costs.

The British government announce's that petition's regarding the referentum are complete and valid.
The house will confirm referentum date in session next Wednesday.

Now here are title's that could be bloggers or opinion based news or an editorial in the newspaper.

3 more deaths on Highway 2. Road must change.

Liberal government delays protecting Canadian borders. The fancy jets are needed soon.

It's okay if the Irish want to split but we must keep Scotland.

If you compare the last two presidents you can see that one understands the difference and the other doesn't. This difference is appearant in the phrasing of their speeches.

One president will identify a set of facts and then say some thing like:

I feel the the nation should go in this direction (opinion)
My advisors and I have concluded that we must go to chaos-astan* and protect their democratic government from rebels. *false country name.

Another president says

There are many ways to be wiretapped. I must have been wiretapped (opinion).

I will force Mexico to pay for the wall by charging tariffs.
( a statement of intentions worth reporting because of the job title held but not worth being above the fold of the newspaper.)

An action that would merit being above the fold is:

President directs Congress to enact trades tariffs on Mexico.

I hope this clarifies things for people. It's pretty academic really.

If it was any other situation the pair of them would be in civil court pursuing libel,slander, and defamation charges against each other.

Because of the politics of the situation this is not happening.

Trump seems to feel that attacking is his best tactic.
We have seen this through the election and he continues to use it. He also likes childish distractions ie walking around behind Hillary to distract the viewer.

Hillary was forced to up the agressiveness of her game. She literally had to raise her voice to be heard during the debate, when it was her turn, due to interference.

Obama is residing behind behind his wall of quiet dignaty. Given that he is a past president it is very very correct for him to do. There may or may not be dirt on him. Oh well we may never know.

Your are right miss we should remember that at the core our inner child finds this fun.

Intectually some of us place a lot of importance to this. We want to unite people to our personal tribe.

I would like to think that if we all got together we would be comfortable throwing the bs flag and no one gets beat up.
