Yet I just saw a President who organized a summit of 50 leaders of Muslim nations


and arranged for billions to be made in war profits by selling arms to a pro terrorist nation, again. Business as usual, different day.

Nothing is really different, just the coat of paint.

Correct but it's better than war with Russia.

Some what true, but we've had the threat of war with Russia for 50 years to get he public in fear and make profits for the MIC. It's still here. Let's not forget the Syria/Russian fear mongering.

In other words, business as usual.

On other fronts:

Gonna fix the ACA - fix is more profits for insurance

No addressing outrageous cost of health care, drugs.

No addressing wholesale banking rip off of the average person.

Millions of illegals still here working to keep wages down for the profits of business. (They value their employees so much)

I know government change is hard and talk is very cheap. We know which one we get the most of.

There will be overlaps with previous administrations. Total change, all at once? Impossible and I'm sure your aware of that fact.

One step at a time.

Much of the above falls in the purview of Congress and the point of the thread.

I read a scary article yesterday, that people are beginning to accept his crap as "normal". It's NOT normal. HE is not normal. His cabinets are NOT normal. For God's sake, get his family out of the west wing, (how ridiculous is that?) stop lying like a rug, and engage in some diplomacy and stop acting like a fool.

All this sh!t is NOT normal. How much more of this crap are we going to have to put up with? His approval rate is at 34% so I would say, he's not doing well at all. In fact, he's doomed in his own destruction.

Hey! Just another perspective, right? On a site where all 34% of those people who approve of him apparently post here.

"Complacency is the hobgoblin of little minds." I think somebody really smart said that.



Lol, and im sure the sky is falling too.... Let me guess, you get your approval ratings from the same media outlets that showed polls that HRC would beat Trump in a landslide victory?? Polls and approval ratings are all crap, but if you want to use them to make your point, then so be it... I dont think the times are as bad as you left make it out to be, but I'm also note a whiner...

True but we don't see Trump pushing any of it. Basically the President isn't the great power many people make him out to be. He can lead or not.

I don't expect much so he's doing par. No broken heart here.

We may not 'see' him pushing it. I'd bet he is and we don't see it. He has a learning curve to contend with, as well.

No, I don't have a broken heart either. I don't have much problem with the sequence of his moves to this point either.

I would have preferred some legal action on the sanctuary issue and criminal charges on 'leakers' but have little interest in chasing people from the last administration until much further down the road. I suspect the lack of action from the DOJ is due this upcoming scrap coming with the Republican Congress. I hope so, anyways.

I hope so. I just want people to be represented again. In all fairness, he's only been there close to 5 months.

He just sold 10 years worth of weapons to a known terrorist sympathizer in Saudi Arabia.


Slight correction:

He just took credit for organizing a deal to MAYBE supply weapons sometime in the future IF the Saudi's decide they want to pay for them and think they need them and the US Government at the time they decide they want them still agrees that it is a good idea. In other words, all it does is say we are on your side, now go kick some Qataris around will you?

He also took credit for all the jobs that this vaporware deal will create and ignore the fact that not one contract was signed, not one new bullet was manufactured, not one new gun, truck, tank, plane, missile, gas mask, night vision goggle, flack jacket, ANYTHING, was ordered. NOT ONE THING. Just a promise to consider it some time in the future, maybe.

He also did not acknowledge that the agreement, such as it is, was negotiated by the Obama Administration.

Excellent thread that very perceptive, NWTrucker! When Diane Feinstein started agreeing with President Trump's positions, that was proof that his Presidency is solidifying and moving in the right direction. Star and Flag!

Thanks for the compliment. I'm not up on Feinstein agreeing with Trump. All I've briefly heard was something to do with looking closer at Hillary.(I thought it was probably fake news.) If that is true, I'd say her motive would separating Hillary from the main body of the Democrat party...damage control.....

Do you have a source on that 'deal' being negotiated by the Obama administration? If so, why wasn't it consummated then?

From what I've seen, the Saudis weren't very happy with Obama and his deal with Iran...likely the real reason and fear that they positioned themselves with the U.S via Trump and his 180 degree policy shift with Iran.. Also, the greeting for Trump was way above the respect shown Obama and his visit.(Not that I trust the house of Saud.)


I'm not saying your take is wrong. Just from what I've seen, your view of it raises more questions. Just saying.

I completely disagree with the original post in the fact things aren't getting quieter. Liberals are acting more wild by the day.

They will not stop until they overturn the results of the election or until 2024.

When you protest the results of an election then you're protesting democracy itself. That's why I said 2024, they can't win on a platform of obstruction and victim cards.

I, for one, would take a bullet for the man.


Most derpest thing I read all day
Anyone that would die for a politician is a sucker


It would be a waste of time to clarify.


Your right , waste of time, no amount of explaining would ever make me understand why someone would take a bullet for a entitled billionaire politician.

Only the most derpest of minds would take a bullet for ANY politician.

He's the first real President since Reagan. So many people are excited to have someone who puts America first.

For the other posters, a short version. How about for nation? For the future of one's children and grandchildren? All soldiers are fools? Firemen? Policemen? First, Trump isn't a politician. Second, even if he was a politician, if I considered that Trump was virtually the last chance for the survival of the nation as envisioned by our forefathers, a prosperous, safe group for all- as best as possible- WHICH I DO, his money or the lack of it, his background or the lack of it, would be irrelevant and is.

I cannot begin to express the contempt I hold for those that cannot envision anything more important than 'self'.

Hmmm, I haven't seen it on the MSM. It looks to me as being less, at least based on the coverage I've seen. On the political level it certainly has reduced. No question.

I'd agree that the Dems haven't given up, but they've cried wolf so many times and with so many variations that people outside the crowd bent on ousting Trump are starting to yawn. At least the ones I've talked to.

I'd also say that more and more are seeing the lack of effect their actions have resulted in and seem more apathetic in their efforts. I could be wrong, but I DO see the Democrat Party becoming more and more irrelevant with each passing day. No leadership of note, no platform to speak of. Only the 'get Trump' message.

My concern isn't the left. It's the so-called right. The Establishment Republicans. The Dems? Already defeated and BURIED..
