That you are agreeing with the racist troll Utley shojld.give you pause.
Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah…..Wait! Go back for a moment…..Did you just call Utley a racist troll?!? Shocking!!! Unbelievable!!! The world turned upside down. Utley has always considered himself to be the Progressive voice of Elba. Well, there were those unfortunate references to Sand Fleas when talking about Arabs. And he has been acting kind of racist in service to his feud with Knicks….But he can be forgiven for that, can’t he? Nothing is more important to Utley then demeaning whoever he’s trying to diminish this week….

a foreign policy that is on the verge of ending the Korean War: something that no previous President has come close to achieving.

Yeah, and this one is not going to get close to ending anything either. This is the fool that thought he had completely schmoozed the Chinese leader with a free room at Mar-a-lago, a couple of free rounds of golf and a couple of free steak dinners. But after a few weeks it turned out the Chinese were not doing any of the things that he wanted. I’m sure XI and his buddies had a good laugh about Trump on their plane ride back to China.

RedState ran away / he bravely ran away, away, / When logic reared its ugly head / he bravely tirned bis tail and fled...
    I believe even a cement-head like Red is starting to see the writing on the wall. He may have not supported Trump (as he claims), but he did support him over even the lowliest of Democratic choices. And now he is starting to feel the consequences of being forced to support an idiot like Trump.
    Actually, I think Trump will fire anybody necessary to stop the Mueller probe, because he knows that if the Mueller probe is ever allowed to see the inside of a courtroom or a government hearing room then he is toast, almost 100% guaranteed. So right now I think he is gearing up to fight this in the only way that he has ever fought these kinds of things—in the media. He’s putting people around him who are used to going on TV and lying their asses off. I think he’s going to try to sell this thing as a corrupt witch hunt to the American public (particularly the part of the American public which make up his base). In other words, your typical Trump con-job, while he will try to survive the expected blow-back from firing Mueller. He will still have the support of the majority of the Republicans, as they are too cowed to resist him. The only time you will see major Republican defections from Trump is when it is crystal-clear to almost everyone that he is is finished. That’s the only time that these brave legislators will start jumping off the Trump Train. (That is probably the time that Melania will dump him too—when it is crystal clear that he is finished. Just at his seemingly lowest point she will stick the shiv in his back by hiring a real lawyer to handle her divorce proceedings. Banks will be hounding him to repay his loans, his kids will be spending more and more of their time in places like Peru [Buenos Dias!]—in short, his whole Trump World collapsed into a giant pile of shit.) Maybe before the expected heart attack or stroke gets him he will wistfully tweet about how great life was before he decided to reach for the ultimate ego boast as POTUS.

And the next segment will be on Pandas, with the tease are they sex-crazed killing machines?
My God…..we’re not going there are we? This could only lead to the secret, seedy behavioral history of Koala bears being revealed….

You just can’t count on those central committees anymore.
Yes, but observe the wonderful work D. Trump has been doing on his politburo cabinet….he’s only sad that he doesn’t get to send them off to a gulag somewhere, or, beating heart be still, give them 9 grams in the back of the neck. But his administration is still young. There will be plenty of time to deal with the enemies of the people in the ‘appropriate’ ways…..

These souless fucking people will monetize anything as long as they pocket the dough.
And yet they walk trough life with a big, freaking smile on their face….well convinced that they are tight with their God and doing right. Yet some people are always saying that we need to lighten up….not to be so ‘partisan’….try harder to find the areas that we can somehow compromise—work together with these ‘people’….Why? They don’t compromise with us. With them it’s always their way or the highway. No—there is no compromise with someone like Pruitt. The only way to deal with someone like him is to win at the ballot box and make sue he never gets near the levers of power again (oh, alright, here’s a compromise….he can run the school board in some dumpy little Oklahoma town….see how much money he can scam off at a gig like that).

things will only worsen in those red states where they abhor education:
Yes….you wonder how far they prefer to de-evolve….Maybe they will loose the ability to communicate using the spoken word—which they gradually will lose….They will just sort of grunt at each other and point…..

Not that this began with Trump. I have no idea why the Kurds still think of us as allies or friends.
Well…..when you don’t have a lot of friends or allies around you maybe we look sort of good. Hope springs eternal…..there’s always the chance that we might actually back up some of the bullshit we spew to other people about democracy and freedom, particularly when they have upheld their part of the bargain.

Not for the Kurds...
Trump and his fellows have practically been shouting from the roof that the Kurds will soon be under the bus, since we apparently have no further use for them now that ISIS is somewhat diminished. These are the type of actions that have made us so loved around the world.

trump may be his best worst enemy.
Look….it’s not easy to try and find the very best people yet consistently end up with the very worst. It’s obviously a skill—a talent—that few people have mastered like the Orange Pretender. How could putting your personal physician in charge of a giant bureaucracy like the Veterans Administration go wrong? Look how placing a brain surgeon in charge of HUD has helped that group. If it were not for the vindictive Left they would have been able to throw the best dinner parties around that beautiful $31,000 table.

Trump and the Porno Movie Star
What is it that I’m not understanding about the Trump/Porn Star non-affair (so-called). Trump says that nothing ever happened—no sex, no affair….nothing. It didn’t happen (despite that photo of his red, bloated face next to her smiling face that has been shown on TV a million times). So if nothing ever happened why was a non-disclosure agreement necessary? You can’t disclose anything about something that didn’t happen. And why did the Trump camp ship $130,000 to a woman who had nothing that she could disclose? If everyone knew that Trump was so easy to blackmail they would be lined up around the block to get their share of Trump’s cash. Is there anyone still stupid enough in this country (other than kidcarter) to fall for Trump’s line of blarney concerning this incident? Are there not a few ‘Women For Trump’ who might now be thinking that at least one or two of those 2 dozen women who came forward to accuse him of predatory sexual behavior before the election might have been telling the truth? How much longer can his rabid supporters stand for this incredibly low standard of behavior for someone who is masquerading as the President of the United States?

Trump is following the Harding foreign policy roadmap which helped lead to the great depression and WWII.
I don’t think Trump even knows who Harding was, much less have any knowledge whatsoever of what his foreign policy decisions consisted of.

Funny......incoming JOHN BOLTON is being accused of being such a "hawk" - but actually could have the less itchy triggger finger of the two
Yeah, he could have, but his past statements would indicate no such thing.

The world has just become significantly more dangerous,
   Yep! Bolton is quite possibly the worst person in this country to fill that position. Some people on the Right are going to have to stand up soon or we are going to be at war with N. Korea or Iran (possibly both at once) within months. People keep wondering how they can all just stand around and let the country drift towards these seemingly inevitable wars behind Trump/Pence and act like there is nothing to be done. We are thinking, feeling human beings. We can change our destiny if only some of these people would stand up. The appointment of Bolton has not been done because he has more knowledge or experience than McMaster. He has been chosen because his views more closely aligns with Trumps. He is clearing out all of the people from his administration who oppose him or who offer even opinions which may differ from his. From here on out he wants total and absolute loyalty from his underlings. We are in some serious, serious trouble here, and the only way to stop this is to find some way to get this fake president out of the White House.
    And judging by some of the moves he has been making with his lawyers lately Trump is also purging that group so that they more closely align with his position on the Mueller probe. I would guess that he has already made the decision to get the Mueller probe shut down. I think that he feels that he would have more chance of success waging a PR campaign against the Russia investigation than if he actually let Mueller disclose anything to the American public. If that happens he probably knows that he is dead meat.

Fox News is reporting this as  Joe Biden threatens to beat up Senior Citizen.
As per usual, if this is how they are trying to slant this, Faux News completely misses the point….that being that Joe Biden would have whipped the Big Orange Cowards ass in high school or as senior citizens.
