You are so misguided I'm not even sure it's worth commenting.


Yet here you are, commenting.

Bit a mirage on many of your items, but I'm sure you'll give credit to Trump anyway. When you look at a graph like like:

Unemploymen t in the U.S.

.. it's obvious Trump didn't "create" the low unemployment rate. He is only taking advantage of what was already trending since Obama took office. Even that is a mirage of sorts - Obama took over after a nasty recession, and of course unemployment rates will go down afterwards.

In fact, it was hilarious to me how Trump supporters were crediting Trump with victories (as was Trump), as soon as a month after he took office - as if his short time as President actually brought around these changes that had been trending for YEARS. Funny stuff.

We'll see once tax reforms are done. Will they benefit small businesses? Middle class? Or will they benefit the richest most of all? We'll know soon!

As far as removing unnecessary fluff.. it was mostly to departments that actually help people. Probably some pruning was necessary, but I find it ironic that the military, who needs oversight and a huge audit more than any other government agency, was thrown cash. While meager cuts were made to departments that actually help Americans. But hey.. gotta keep that war machine rolling I guess. Even though we have outdated equipment, failing ships, but someone can't account for TRILLIONS of dollars in the Pentagon. No.. let's not fix the real problem, let's just reach for low hanging fruit and claim massive victories.

The border wall? pfft.. it was a stupid idea, will probably never get built, and if it is built, it won't be as suggested it would be, and I really really doubt Mexico is paying for that wall. I wonder how much it will cost the U.S. - because you bet we'll be paying for the bulk of it.

Trump is doing great. Don't believe me. Just watch Lou Dobbs interview Trump from the other night. It's awesome watching a grown man fawn over another. I saw stars in Dobbs' eyes. Adorable.

Your forgot the Paris Accords.

He said he was withdrawing the US from that environmental agreement but the US is still a signatory and still working with the other signatories.

Oh, he wrote a letter to the UN saying he wanted to pull the US out but it isn't happening in practice.

All of those people bought and paid for by lobbyists. Huge $$$ rolling around the corridors of power.



Did you here the one about how TWO GUYS got a 300 Million Dollar contract to rebuild Puerto Rico's power grid?

Trump Cabinet Secretary's hometown, 2-person company wins $300m power-rebuilding contract in Puerto Rico



debt-crushed Puerto Rico is paying $300 million to Whitefish Energy, a two-person company from Trump Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke's hometown of Whitefish, Montana.

Zinke says the fact that he is pals with the owners of Whitefish Energy has nothing to do with the company winning the contract, and the fact that they used to employ Zinke's son has nothing to do with it either.


For EFFS SAKE...How Putin-esque!!

Trump is building his cabinet like Putin..Friends...Billionaires..Flying everywhere on the taxpayers dime and funneling money to their own pockets at every turn, safe and warm in the GOP+Trump unified embrace that they will never be held accountable.

The Trump Administration Smells like Russian Swamp water.


That smells fishy, until you do 30 seconds of research and find out the federal government had no say in who got that contract. It was awarded by PREPA, a Puerto Rican company connected to PR's government


Why again did PREPA sign a 300 Million Dollar contract with these two guys when there were multiple assistance options available both through federal aid and private? Cuz they haven't given a good answer yet.



You'd have to ask them. Doesn't change the fact they have absolutely nothing to do with the Trump admin.


Apart from signing a deal for 300 Million with a company that consisted of two guys operating out of a cabin in Whitefish Montana that happen to be buddies with Trumps secretary of the Interior and bankrolled by a Huuuge Trump donor.

There are conflicting explanations of how this deal came to be. Lots of unanswered questions

digg.com...



Narrative busted. Now you know this is bogus, so don't go knowingly spreading lies around the forum ok?


It is not narrative it is facts.

Google the word "fact".




No. The facts are that that company got the contract. The narrative you're trying to push is that it somehow has something to do with Trump. That is 100% false. Just don't push that narrative and you're fine. You can ask how they got the contract all you want, but it had nothing to do with the Trump admin. They had absolutely zero say in who got that contract. That's a fact.

Oh ok, so you're changing your standard now and legislation is indeed the President's responsibility. Gotcha. So all the legislation he's signed so far are accomplishments. Again, you can't have it both ways. Sorry, this isn't kindergarten.

Trump is private sector going into a public office. What did everyone expect out of his administration? You can trick people easily in the private sector, but the public sector is a whole nother league.

His ivy league background is beginning to look like a farm of weeds.

my issues with trump, are many. I have had, many "talks" with hard core trump supporters and it baffles me.

most are supporting and voted against there own bests interests, but most fail to see that. for trump, everything is fake news, except the actual fake news websites again this baffles me. i just cant understand it really....

everything he does, is self interests based, or ideological far right based. which generally is not good for the US.
which virtually none of his supporters actually understand. nothing he has done, is actually a good idea.

basic #, like killing science, dismantling the EPA, net neutrality, clean tech, trying to bring back coal instead of pushing
solar, i mean it baffles me.

this stuff, will hurt our nation for many years and allow china, japan etc to catch up and pass us. it will hurt our
economy in a huge way. think jobs a re bad now, just wait until the moronic # trump is trying to push takes hold for awhile.

his agenda is not "lets make america great again" its lets make me rich again....

This is not about just getting things done. It is about showing how things do NOT get done.


I believe that OP would have to give you that point ... Trump (and the inept Republican Congress) are masters at how things don't get done.

Here's what really gets me.

This administration, it's hirelings, how it came to be, why it's there, who is there "how and why" is the greatest conspiracy theory since 911. So much to dig into about all the players, their histories, philosophies, motivations, previous lives in business, how they became so wealthy, and all the juicy facts that could be explored.

And yet, HERE, on ATS, the conspiracy site, the only conspiracies are against the WHISTLEBLOWERS!

Mind. Blown.

If you're interested in some of the actual conspiracy features in this regard ...

Georgia Election Server Wiped after Lawsuit



Days after activists filed a lawsuit over the security of Georgia's election systems, the university housing the servers at the center of the case wiped them of all data.





In March, the CES was notified by researcher Logan Lamb that a vulnerability in web security allowed attackers to read internal files not meant for public consumption. Those files included voter records which contained the date of birth and Social Security number of 5.7 million Georgians. They also included memos containing credentials to the state's ExpressPoll brand electronic poll book.

Georgia held a congressional election shortly after, with Republican Karen Handel defeating Democrat John Ossoff. The lawsuit alleges that with the data vulnerable, attackers might have affected the election.


Russ ians tried to hack election systems of 21 states in 2016, officials say



MADISON, Wis. — Russians attempted to hack elections systems in 21 states in the run-up to last year's presidential election, officials said Friday.




According to the Associated Press, states that were targeted included some key political battlegrounds, such as Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.

The AP contacted every state election office to determine which ones had been informed that their election systems had been targeted. The others confirming were Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, Minnesota, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas and Washington.
