    So much winning.
    America's diplomatic power craters as Trump continues to make a buffoon of himself

    Just 30 percent of people interviewed in 134 countries last year approved of American leadership under Mr. Trump, a drop of nearly 20 percentage points since President Barack Obama’s final year and the lowest finding since the Gallup polling organization began asking the question overseas more than a decade ago. The decline was especially steep in Latin America, Europe and Canada. [...]
    The survey showed that approval of American leadership has fallen 10 points or more in 65 of the 134 countries since Mr. Trump’s inauguration, while it increased by that much or more in just four countries: Belarus, Israel, Liberia and Macedonia. It fell by 40 percentage points in Canada (from 60 percent in 2016 to 20 percent in 2017) and 28 percentage points in Mexico (from 44 to 16 percent).


    Among NATO countries, 18 of 28 had 10-point declines or more, including Italy (14 points), Germany (21 points), Britain (26 points), France (28 points), Belgium (44 points) and Portugal (51 points). Even in Norway, which Mr. Trump singled out last week for praise, saying he would rather immigrants come from there than Africa or Haiti, just 13 percent approved of Mr. Trump’s leadership, down 42 points from Mr. Obama.

    Nope. People who subscribe to those ideologies are not fine people.

    But lumping fine people in with them in an effort to "dehumanize" an entire side of a political debate is an awful thing to do, and makes it impossible to find middle ground between two sides in a debate.

    Paul Ryan is blaming the Democrats for the shutdown when his own leader in the Senate would not support the bill. What a farce!

    Four Republicans voted against including:
    Lindsey Graham of South Carolina
    Mike Lee of Utah
    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
    Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul.

    Right.

    Blame the Democrats because they have the House, the Senate and the White House within their control and are such bad negotiators.

    A farce.

    The UK decided no pussyhats as it was discrimination against those who are transgender, or those that didnt have pink parts. So they ditched the hats. Meanwhile the March in Vegas is on the 21st.Women in Victoria are still organizing, but wearing pinkhats..* snort*

    i lumped no one in with nazis and klansmen.

    you are the one who continues to parrot the donald’s lumping imaginary “very fine people” in with them on their march and in what they seek to accomplish.

    as for your desire to seek middle ground, there is no middle ground with nazis and klansmen. period.

    there is no debate on the evil nazis and klansmen personify in their choices and actions. period.

    if it’s your position that this dehumanizes nazis and klansmen, i can live with that.

    So, fix it already. You said that you and only you can do it. So, what's stopping you?

    ‘I Alone Can Fix It’
    Breaking with two centuries of political tradition, Donald Trump didn’t ask Americans to place their trust in each other or in God, but rather, in Trump.

    I am your voice, said Trump. I alone can fix it. I will restore law and order. He did not appeal to prayer, or to God. He did not ask Americans to measure him against their values, or to hold him responsible for living up to them. He did not ask for their help. He asked them to place their faith in him.

    Donald can certainly sympathize with someone in his party paying off someone and having them sign a non-disclosure agreement.

    Republican lawmaker settled harassment complaint with former staffer: report

    Pennsylvania Rep. Patrick Meehan (R), a member of the House Ethics Committee, used taxpayer dollars to settle a sexual harassment claim made by a former staffer, according to a Saturday report.


    Meehan reportedly settled the claim for an undisclosed amount paid out of his congressional office fund, The New York Times reported. The fund allows payments to be disguised as salary and reported months later, but the Times reported the sum is likely in the thousands.

    Meehan, a married father of three who has been involved in investigations into at least four lawmakers for similar claims in recent months, was accused of professing romantic desires to a staffer after she became involved in a relationship with someone outside Meehan's office. Meehan, who is decades older than his accuser, allegedly grew hostile when she did not accept his romantic overtures.

    Pretty much what the majority of American voters are saying as well.

    GOP strategist: Shutdown is on Trump and GOP

    Republican strategist John Weaver said Saturday that blame for the government shutdown falls on President Trump and the GOP.


    “Trump created the [Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program] crisis. The congressional wing of the GOP refused to fund CHIP. Trump & GOP ignored the pleas of the Pentagon for a fully funded budget. All of this is on them,” Weaver said.

    Michael Wolff Suggests Trump Is Having an Extramarital Affair “Now”


    The revelation came when Maher asked Wolff if there was anything in the book that he wishes people would ask him about. “There is, but I can’t tell you what it is,” Wolff said. “Well, **** you, Mike,” Maher responded. Wolff then went on to say he was “absolutely sure” of the information but it was so “incendiary” and he didn’t have the “ultimate” proof. “I didn’t have the blue dress,” he added, in a clear reference to Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton. Maher got excited: “It’s somebody he’s ******* now?” Wolff said “yes” but didn’t elaborate. He did make it clear though there are hints in his book. “You just have to read between the lines,” he said. “Now that I’ve told you, when you hit that paragraph, you’re gonna say bingo.”

    $130,000 at minimum. And apparently there were a hundred during the campaign.

    Steve Bannon suggests Trump's lawyer 'took care' of 'a hundred' women during the presidential campaign


    Steve Bannon, President Donald Trump's former top strategist, alleged in journalist Michael Wolff's tell-all book about the Trump White House that the president's longtime attorney, Marc Kasowitz, "took care" of 100 women during the presidential campaign.


    "Look, Kasowitz has known [Trump] for twenty-five years. Kasowitz has gotten him out of all kinds of jams," Bannon reportedly said. "Kasowitz on the campaign — what did we have, a hundred women? Kasowitz took care of all of them."


    This apparently off-hand remark may take on new significance after The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday that another lawyer for the president, Michael Cohen, sent $130,000 to a porn star just weeks before the 2016 presidential election to keep her silent about an alleged 2006 sexual encounter with Trump.

    Maybe that's where the missing inauguration money went.
    TRUMP'S INAUGURATION MONEY IS STILL MISSING ONE YEAR AFTER HIS ADMINISTRATION TOOK CONTROL OF THE WHITE HOUSE

    Almost one year after President Donald Trump took the oath of office, millions of dollars from his leftover inauguration funds have still not been donated to the charities they were promised to.


    Trump's inauguration committee raised a record-breaking $107 million as his administration prepared to assume the White House last year, but very little has been disclosed about where the remaining money was allocated. As the one-year anniversary of Trump's inauguration approaches, a government watchdog group is questioning why the funds disappeared, and a congressman is proposing legislation to keep future administrations from obscuring their own inaugural donations.

    http://www.newsweek.com/trump-inaugu...missing-783934
    Let's see, $130,000 times 100 women "taken care of during the campaign" equals $13,000,000. A drop in the bucket from $107, 000,000

    Sen. Tammy Duckworth, who had both of her legs blown off when the helicopter she was piloting was hit by an RPG in Iraq, isn't having any of Trump's ****.

    Duckworth slams Trump: I won't be lectured on military needs by a 'five-deferment draft dodger'

    “I spent my entire adult life looking out for the well-being, the training, the equipping of the troops for whom I was responsible,” she continued. “Sadly, this is something that the current occupant of the Oval Office does not seem to care to do — and I will not be lectured about what our military needs by a five-deferment draft dodger.”


    “And I have a message for cadet bone spurs: If you cared about our military, you'd stop baiting Kim Jong Un into a war that could put 85,000 American troops, and millions of innocent civilians, in danger."

    Context please.

    Looked at the photos. Does the sign connect US capitalism and Russian Communism?

    The ANTIFA flag does not look part of the parade, possibly off to the side. Any violent acts by the group? Nope?

    One million peaceful people. Saw no guns or weapons. Burning torches or shouts of blood and soil. ..

It's because conservatives believe in other people's right to express their free speech. It's nice when you just let people to say what they want without assaulting them, isn't it?

    However, due to the violent far left-wing constantly using political violence to assault people with views they don't like, police are always needed to protect conservatives from violent left-wingers whenever people on the right hold a march. https://twitter.com/JackPosobiec/sta...79686370349056

    2 photos?

    How many people had cameras or smart phones today at the rallies. Hit: All of them, a million or more. Thousands of independent reporters are all in the conspiracy and Hillary is paying them all from her Pizzagate proceeds.

    You have two unverified photos with no context.

    They're starting to eat their own.

    NRA’s Loesch attacked Kayleigh McEnany as ‘flat-chested’ after Trump spokeswoman’s breast cancer surgery


    "“Baby cakes,” Loesch ranted, “this was more than just going on television and flashing your pearly whites and your flat chest, red dress, over-sprayed bleach blond hair while you sit and preach all this stuff about who is or isn’t a conservative? You like Trump — let me act like him for a minute. I bet you love me now.”


    At the time, McEnany was recovering from a preventative double mastectomy, which she underwent after learning she is genetically disposed to cancer."
