    Well, here we go again.

    'Unite the Right' anniversary: White nationalists planning to rally in D.C.

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news...t-rally-washington-charlottesville/796998002/

    I don't doubt Trump's comments to that effect will be closely watched and critiqued.

    Maybe we'll get to see some of those 'adequate qualifiers' that rationalize hatred, racism and National Socialism this time around :rolleyes:

    (In our nation's capital, of all places. What the world will think of us after that? )

    Russia calls new U.S. sanctions over ex-spy's poisoning 'draconian' and 'far-fetched'

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news...-sergei-skripal-novichok-poisoning/944303002/

    Unfortunately for Trump, looks like someone in the GOP grew a spine.


    That probably upset Trump the most :D

    How do you feel about destructive tariff policies?
    Such as results mentioned in this news article:

    These companies might close, lay off US workers because of Trump's trade war

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news...lay-off-american-workers-trade-war/929019002/

    Too much to copy and paste.
    No doubt the list will grow.
    It grows too big and our economy goes into a recession.

    BTW, the list is incomplete. It doesn't address agriculture and likely other concerns yet to get attention.

    No doubt this is only going to generate more paranoia in the White House whether it's true or false :D

    Scenario: Trump, unhinged conversations, recorded on Omarosa's smartphone.
    Trump sure knows how to hang out with women he winds up regretting. lol!
    From prostitute porn stars to Playmate concubines to reality stars.
    What could ever go wrong :D

    Omarosa's White House book: Did she secretly tape Trump?

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/life...e-book-did-she-secretly-tape-trump/939683002/

    Sure, it could all be a hoax to generate book sales, but the imagery of search and seizure, any form of telecommunications and anyone in the presence of Trump is now likely to go down as a footnote in history.



    Hope my library gets several copies :D

    And now the dark side of Omarosa's book:

    Omarosa claims tapes exist of Trump using N-word and her quest to find them got her fired

    Time for some humorous news ;)

    Americans believe Stormy Daniels more than President Trump, poll says

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2018/08/10/stormy-daniels-donald-trump-poll/958509002/

    Imagine that, a porn star has more credibility than our President. :D

    I'll bet even Putin chuckled at that LOL!

    It is interesting like a train wreck. And mind you; this is our current societal interests AND our duly elected leader. Generally, I would assume, this is cause for concern.

    Reminds me of Keeping Up With Those Idiots to be quite honest.

    I'm just going to find a baseball game to watch and read a Sandford book. When the news begins to resemble reality TV time to stop watching the news.

    I've got little to say, other than at least the press exposed her contradictions in short order and
    I doubt this is going to be explained away. She's got a serious problem of credibility now.

    This poll readily demonstrates how the media (Liberal Democrat – in this case) will take every opportunity to distort reality and push a particular agenda.

    So…. Let’s look at the juicy numbers behind this poll. Here. (Pg 243 & 244)

    Party Affiliation:
    Democrat: 521
    Independent: 574
    Republican: 379
    Total: 1,474

    Hmmm… Polling Democrats over Republicans by 10%. Shocker!

    Gender:

    Female: 798
    Male: 676

    And females (who typically vote predominately Democrat) are polled over men by 8%. Not to mention that Stormy, being a female, is much more likely to be viewed as credible by females when viewing past statements made by Trump.

    Ideology:

    Liberal: 429
    Moderate: 424
    Conservative: 498
    Not Sure: 123

    When you consider that Liberals and Moderates (which are supposed to be Trump haters according to the media) are polled over Conservatives by 24% - 26% (depending on how the "Not Sure" category is evaluated), this poll exposes a huge potential problem for the Democrat Party.

    2016 Vote:
    Clinton: 509
    Trump: 482

    At least the 2016 vote was only polled for Clinton over Trump by 2%, which lends this poll some credence and could indicate a potential problem for the Republican party; but, in light of the other poll differences that may be unlikely.

    Obviously, this poll had to be significantly skewed in order to obtain a slight 4 point margin in favor of Daniels credibility.

    So much for the media and intellectual honesty.

    Again, reading the links gives a more accurate depiction of the contents lol!
    If you had read it, you could have saved yourself a lot of silly effort.
    The poll is what it is:

    In case you haven't figured it out, of 1500 respondents, there were more Democrats than Republicans responding lol!

    Like I said, a little bit of humor ;)


    Student of logic, huh? :D

    In case you missed a big point in the numbers, a prostitute ( woman that's paid to perform sexual acts) and the President of the Unites States both lack a lot of credibility about the same topic lol.

    (But Trump did transfer a lot of money into her financial accounts ha ha ha ha !)

    What is missing with these Stormy articles is not that the President hires hookers, it's about who's money he used to buy her services and silence ;)
    If campaign finances, he's got a legal problem.
    That's the issue.


    But it was a fun article :)

    Hey Chawbacon :)

    You spent a lot of time on those poll numbers, and polls never do prove much till the final one comes when we cast our votes during elections,
    have you given any thought to what the Bush administration defined 'WMD' as in regards to their claims against Saddam?
    Any position on destructive trade tariffs as I pointed out several posts ago?

    Or is the morality of hookers and their tricks more interesting? :D

    edit: BTW, what kind of an "adequate qualifier" would rationalize hatred, racism and National Socialism?
    googled the term 'qualifier' and got this:
    A 'qualifier' seems to refer to the status of a claim, be it as an absolute or specified degree.
    Is even a little bit of hatred, racism, or National Socialism acceptable in a President?



    Your thoughts, please.
