Putin ordered, Trump delivered—Russian think tank drew up plan for 2016 election

http://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/4/19/1654470/-Putin-ordered-Trump-delivered-Russian-think-tank-drew-up-plan-for-2016-election

Reuters has an exclusive report showing that Russia’s interference in the 2016 election wasn't a series of disconnected events. It was a plan.

A Russian government think tank controlled by Vladimir Putin developed a plan to swing the 2016 U.S. presidential election to Donald Trump and undermine voters’ faith in the American electoral system, three current and four former U.S. officials told Reuters.


Trump was right all along

the election was RIGGEDLOL

^Thanks, Satori!  I wonder if Putin has buyer's remorse now?  I bet he does.  

This is interesting - "dossier" may have quite a bit of truth in it! 


The FBI reportedly used the explosive, unverified dossier detailing President Donald Trump's alleged ties to Russia to bolster its case for a warrant that would allow it to surveil Carter Page, an early foreign-policy adviser to Trump's campaign.

Saw this in the comments section and it seemed worthy of sharing.

Trump budget chief: Spending bill must have money for wall

https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-budget-chief-spending-bill-205819475.html

"." Trump also repeatedly promised that Mexico would pay for the wall. But its cost, expected to exceed $20 billion, would likely be borne by taxpayers."

SUCKERS !!!

Wow! Shocked

I'm so glad I'm British.  Were I an American, that would cost me and my family over $200k.  Here we pay nothing.  

I've paid a lot in tax - its true, but I'm happy with that.  Overall, I break even.  The difference is, with our way, I sleep well at night - secure in the knowledge that, however bad things get, the system will rescue me.  The small fortune I have paid to the system is recycled as security.  I watch my friends, family and colleagues benefit from the same stress relief.  EVEN BETTER!!!

Sorry USA!  Cuba looks better than you from over here.  Do you really value money over each other?

I have many American friends whom I value very highly and generally think America is worthy of its position as world leader.  However, there are times when America seems to be overcome with the most heinous attack of hypocrisy ever witnessed by mankind.  

Most of you are Christians and persue that religion at a near-fanatical level.  Yet, I seem to recall the words "Thou shalt not kill." and "Judge not, lest ye be judged." were handed down by God the very father of Jesus.  'And Jesus said that you should forgive those that sin against you and love thy neighbor.  I think that was a little before Jesus threw a load of money lenders and hawkers out of his Father's house.  

However, none of this, obviously, applies to Arkansas, which takes a delight in state murder, especially, it appears, of black people (Can I remind you that the word Samaritan referred to a member of another race).  It also seems to me that those with lots of money in high positions don't give a damn about the sick and dying...................................... After all they are only "working class trash" and not God's children at all.  

COME ON AMERICA!  We look up to you as the police-force of, and example to the world.  Don't let this shame continue.

This is a plea, not just a criticism.

Thank you Carbon.

Your comments mirror my sentiments exactly.  But, as a Brit raised in NZ, I expect common sense from our big brothers.  'And I can't see why our government of the day ever stabbed OZ and NZ in the back by joining the EU. - Which, incidentally, the people did not vote for.  We only voted for the common market.

I voted out, 'coz I wanted you lot back!!!  -And the right for us Brits to visit or stay there (Hopefully, Have us back.  We did not mean it!!!)

the IMBECILE who the leader of the free world

Trump, on television, yet again displays ignorance and incoherence. And no, that's not normal.

Trump's thoughts on healthcare


JOHN DICKERSON: Okay. So what I hear you saying is pre-existing is going to be in there for everybody, it's not going to be up to the states?


PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Pre-existing is going to be in there and we're also--

JOHN DICKERSON: And it's not up to the states?

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: --going to create pools.

JOHN DICKERSON: Okay.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: And pools are going to take care of the pre-existing.

JOHN DICKERSON: But on that crucial question, it's not going to be left up to the states? Everybody gets pre-existing, no matter where they live?

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: No, but the states--

JOHN DICKERSON: Guaranteed?

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: --are also going to have a lot to do with it because we ultimately want to get it back down to the states.

JOHN DICKERSON: Okay. Is it a guarantee?

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Look, because if you hurt your knee, honestly, I'd rather have the federal government focused on North Korea, focused on other things, than your knee, okay?


rambling and incoherent to say the least


time for a CT scan of the head?

someone has has a stroke ???

Make no mistake: I am no Trump supporter.

However, he has never been that coherent a speaker.*   I do not doubt his intelligence, although I do doubt his education.  Other presidents have used a professional speech writer, to great effect.  Obviously this is not the case here.  He set out to break many moulds in his pre-electoral promises, and despite everything I laud him for that, America has lots of entrenched problems, but apparently he broke the speech mould too.  What really scares me is that so few seem to notice.





 *Despite much study I can't make my mind up whether he is deliberately dumbing down his speech, to appeal to his supporters (yep! That is what I mean.) or actually so ill educated you could write a list of his mastered adjectives on the back of a postcard - in large print.  -I never would have believed you could use "super", "great", "amazing" and "fake" so many times in one speech, FREQUENTLY ERRONEOUSLY.Ermm

Honestly, watching Trump speak is painful to say the least. Between the body language, poor grasp of basic grammar, and overuse of adverbs of degree like "very", I see someone operating far beyond their level of comfort and competence.

After 8 years of disaster - continuing to emulate Saturday Night Live with daily Trump bashing is an exercise in futility. He is the U.S. President and will be despite efforts since I first posted - let's move on - and like a desperate man pleading with his X-wife to take him back - there will not be another election until 2020.

My fear was that if Hillary Clinton took office, we would be set for another 4 years of idiocy in foreign policy, health care, and we would all be speaking Arabic by now after the Muslims took over America.

As for Obama, you simply cannot take an ex-cocaine user who would trip off and write in a diary about his vision seriously. Raised by a cleric and they never did produce and original birth certificate. It was a copy. No one ever pressed this. He was elected primarily because he was black and if he wasn't he would not have even made it to the primaries.

The Trump is retarded joke is getting old. He is a very intelligent person and the surgical strike on Syria was the first definite intelligent military move America has made in a long time.

We have far more to fear from Black Lives Matter and anarchy than Donald Trump. We need to spend more energy worrying about our military and national security that if the transgenders can find a bathroom where people won't be mean to them and the gays can force Christian ministers to marry them.

The party is over. It was once said - Those who can do - do. Those who can't teach - and those cannot do either of the first - criticize.

We have a nation of armchair generals and people who are immune to logic driven the lying media into a frenzy. The demonstrations are paid for and sponsored by foreign nationals and the polls are notoriously rigged.

People are bored. Instead of taking charge of their own lives and accepting responsibility for their situation, they blame the government. Our medical system cannot afford to support people who are here illegally. Our economic situation cannot either.

Obama care sucks. It is in its death throes and many providers will refuse it. You cannot keep your own doctor (a lie) you will get inferior care and the young people are not going to pay for it when they don't use it themselves.

We need a better plan and it isn't going to be free. For three generations some people have collected and lived off of the government. People who could have worked and instead just made more babies to collect more money.

Socialized medicine is bad.

So everyone can continue being afraid or they can try to somehow give back to society what they are taking. We need immigration control. Minorities have become big business and huge amounts of money flow based on what color a person's skin is. And the whites - are pushed to the back of the bus.

An elderly single veteran must compete with people with swarms of children who eat whatever resources there are alive.

Perhaps be afraid - be very afraid now the President Trump is in office. People may dare to be proud of being an American and actually all races get equal treatment. Our education standards won't be dropped and teachers won't be hired who cannot pass a basic proficiency test in what they teach.

It isn't easy to be President - at least a good one.  No comments about what could be the biggest tax break in history for people that will effect the poor and increase the standard deduction.

I have been saying for 4 months - get over it and try and support and work with what may rebuild our nation, economy, bring in more jobs, and make America great again.

Trump bashing is a sport and people truly enjoy it.

The greatest thing to fear is fear itself. Now - back to trying to change the world for the better ...

You mean "move on" as so many on the right did during Obama's Presidency, Med? And I don't remember the office of Commander in Chief automatically earning the respect you now demand. You "bashed" Obama while he was in office, and you're still doing it. How is that any different?

Obummer?
Muslim in Chief?
Need I continue?

Incidentally, for all you might disagree with some of his policies, Obama did seem to be fairly eloquent: for instance; Using varied adjectives in gramatically correct sentences and limiting the use of adverbs, thereby preserving clarity and precision.  I suppose it's an unforgivable crime to avoid talking down to ones followers.  

What really annoys me is the fact that Trump himself is clearly intelligent.  So is it laziness, or a choice?  I am leaning towards the latter.  If you have to chose among the floating voters to appeal to and you pick the less educated ones, then, when you can't do something you promised, like getting Mexico to pay for your pointless* wall, you stand a better chance of wriggling out of the consequences.  If, with the same policies, you want to appeal to the educated intelligentia, then said wriggle room evaporates.





*If you build an 8 foot high wall, then those who want to cross will build 9ft ladders. If you build a 16 foot high wall, then those who want to cross will build 17ft ladders.  If you build a 20 foot high wall, then those who want to cross will build 21ft ladders.   This is a potentially infinite progression and a ladder takes far less resources to build than a wall.  Duh!

Medclinician said - He is a very intelligent person


Trump: ‘I mean had Andrew Jackson been a little later you wouldn’t have had the Civil War. He was a very tough person, but he had a big heart. He was really angry that he saw what was happening with regard to the Civil War, he said, “There’s no reason for this.”

Trump: ‘People don’t realize, you know, the Civil War, if you think about it, why? People don’t ask that question, but why was there the Civil War? Why could that one not have been worked out?’


Enough said!
