    That isn't a crime in the USA?

    Here it's cost more than one government it's life and removed a few ministers from government.

How about the executive power to wage war, which is entirely without basis in fact ? (Francis Dunham Wormuth, To Chain the Dogs of War) ...

    I'd be a hell of a lot more impressed with your ethics and concerns if you had bothered to express them AT ANY TIME DURING THE PAST FIFTY YEARS !!

    Agree with this. Trump wasn't elected because he was any good. He was elected because Billary sneered at the people she is supposed to represent. Even Eva Peron was smarter than that.

    And on the other side, no one with an IQ over ten would support any of the loser Republicans running. So he won. I was actually surprised and somewhat pleased. Smart move to go after the peasants our barons have screwed. Hillary the Backstabber is the devil's representative aboveground.

    But sadly, we were deprived of the opportunity to say, "Great White Mother in Washington speak with forked tongue ..." Damn.

    Now he needs to just ignore the losers and get on with the work he promised to do.
    Yes. Or maybe. Or maybe sort of. Depends on what you mean by "what he promised to do." Since he promised everything, you can pick and choose.

    He has a team of like-minded, very capable people in place, and more to come.
    Oh yeah. He's for the average Amurrican, that's why he appointed a Goldman guy to Treasury. Took Trump just about as long as Obummer to totally betray the people who voted for him - roughly one week.

    Thanks for the knife in the back, fella. The scar makes a nice match to the one our man Obummer gave me..

    Seriously for a moment, how's your heart ? Can you handle an aneurism ? Go to Rolling Stone (gag), find Matt Taibbi's articles, and go through them. Some will make you upset, that's okay, but pay attention to the ones about Wall Street. They are not hearsay and religious dogma, they are documented facts which no one has ever even attempted to deny, about what was done to us by Wall Street over the past ten or twenty years.

    I remember Bill Agee. Is he in Hell yet, getting a red-hot poker up the ass ? And he was just an early indicator of the hordes who came after. Judas Iscariot was a more admirable human being.

    He just needs to get rid of the lifer bureaucrats who are making trouble, and he needs to shut down the Obama team that is already working against him.
    He just needs to pay some group of ragheads to nuke Congress. That'd do the job nicely. Since our latest jets can only fly at 500 mph that shouldn't be too difficult.

    But somehow I doubt that'll happen. And if it did, you lunatics would just elect new assholes to give you the same old crap that you have now.

    Who was it said "elections have consequences"?
    Barbara Boxer, I think. Boy did she go to the Dark Side ... When she was a reporter for the Pacific Sun she wasn't too bad.

    As someone who does a bit of "precision sheet metal", I'd have to agree. (Unfortunately, the truth in the sheet metal world seems to be, "if it looks good, it is good.") A friend who's an ex MP claims "military intelligence" as his favorite, mine being "crisis management".

    I really don't know if a member of the US House of Representatives can be impeached.

    But I do want to thank Representative David Nunes (R-Calif) for putting the notion in the public's eye )

    Sad thing is Nunes will probably be reelected.
    not sure if a fed can be recalled, we did throw a Governor out that way.

    wait till the midterms that's when he will be impeached.
    wasn't Johnson the only one that has actually gone to the Senate?
    Nixon resigned because he knew he would be impeached and convicted.
    and we have had some pretty bend Presidents, and still Nixon is the only one forced out.

    He made the mistake of pissing off the head of the FBI, which should tell you something

    Trump's business network reached alleged Russian mobsters

    Looking more and more like the hook between Trump and the Russians is Trump's facilitation of Russian money laundering via selling them condos and apartments which are nothing more than parking places for their crooked money.

    Ken McCallion, a former US prosecutor in New York where most all major financial crimes are prosecuted, went so far as to say outright that Trump is being propped up by Russian oligarchs and if he lost the support of these goons then his empire would collapse in a short time. He's quoted in the article as well as making the same claim live on CNN.

    They aren't getting paid...so no nepotism clause.
    Trump is immune to conflict of interest charges.

    If nepotism was good enough for Millard Fillmore than its good enough for the Orangutang.

    Besides, good ole Millard was a member of the nativist "Know-Nothing" Party, and therefore makes a fine example for Donald, who has more in common with Millard than he knows, since he doesn't read books.

    We're going to elect a female President eventually; why waste time on one who might actually be qualified for the job when we can save money by electing one who is already in the building and won't cost the nation any moving expenses? By 2020 we'll be used to the idea of unqualified people inheriting the leadership positions--look at how England survived the Tudor dynasty and think about all the parallels between Henry VIII and Donald the Junior. Sure Henry had more wives (barely) than Donald, but people lived shorter lives back then, what with diseases, and beheading and all.

    I'm relieved to read that corruption (money being passed off the record) doesn't happen in the USA.

    Are all Trump's businesses on stand by the next 4 years?

    Did Putin come from a very rich family or is the fact he's very, very rich without working come from winning the lottery many times?
