Re: When is Enough ,Enough?

Gone With the Wind, an iconic American movie, now a racist dog whistle.

This is my mom's favorites movie. She might actually be the sweetest woman in the world, turns out she's a racist devil. I'll let her know tomorrow.

And honestly a Trump supporter outraged by being run over if you stand in someone’s way? Hahaha. One example. Bernie. Ill give you 500 people Trump ran over because they stood in his way.

Your response was very long (I've had some brewskies). Not a bad thing. I just realized as I was responding to the main points I thought you made, that no matter what I said you weren't going to accept them anyways, so I gave up. HTTR!

'We should be very afraid': Admiral who oversaw Bin Laden raid hits out at Trump over sacking of intelligence chief


In a searing op-ed, the former head of US Special Operations Command, who supervised the 2011 Navy SEAL raid in Pakistan that killed Osama bin Laden, has slammed Donald Trump’s reckless attitude towards the intelligence community saying that Americans should be afraid of the president's actions.

Retired Navy admiral William McRaven, writing in The Washington Post about the dismissal of director of national intelligence Joe Maguire, decries the fact that Mr Maguire was apparently ousted simply for doing his job — the dissemination of intelligence to elected officials





He writes: “As Americans, we should be frightened — deeply afraid for the future of the nation. When good men and women can’t speak the truth, when facts are inconvenient, when integrity and character no longer matter, when presidential ego and self-preservation are more important than national security — then there is nothing left to stop the triumph of evil.”

Admiral McRaven opens with the famous quote from Irish statesman and philosopher Edmund Burke: “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

He lists the good men and women that have come and gone in the Trump administration: Jim Mattis, John Kelly, HR McMaster, Sue Gordon, Dan Coats, and now Joe Maguire, and later mournfully says that “in this administration, good men and women don’t last long".

Mr Maguire’s extensive career, including 36 years as a Navy SEAL, is described in detail by Admiral McRaven who paints a picture of a patriot and a man of integrity.

When caught up in the Ukraine whistleblower case, Mr Maguire told the White House he would testify if asked and would tell the truth — and he did, says Admiral McRaven.

Problem is it lacks actual substance or evidence other than bernie honeymooned in Russia.
CRed the IA’s are briefing congress about Russian interference and the Dems are the only ones taking it to heart. Im completely confused about your take that somehow ignoring it is the best course of action.
And you or the writer cannot with a straight face say the sowing of discord amongst the right and left in this country is a result of the dems right? U obviously see Trump has divided this nation on a daily basis from his bully pulpit? Right? Or maybe we are living in different worlds? Like SD said redskins football makes us besties. Lol. But politically speaking I am pulling my hair out about you twisting the narrative here and saying the dems and Bernie are Putins puppets. I mean if a reaction is all he is looking for than ok sure, but it isn’t. He is looking for a true puppet. One that will publicly excuse and not admonish him. One that will give him a foothold in the middle east. One that will make the ukraine look like the bad guys. I mean how in the hell do u ignore all that and post an article about bernie honeymooning in russia? Lol

Re: When is Enough ,Enough?

I echo sdskins note on football vs politics, and I know that this will fall on deaf ears, or even be called a cult or trumpettes or whatever makes you guys feel better but at some point enough IS effin enough.

I am kind of sick and tired of listening to all the clap trap about Putin and Trump. IF we look at the FACTS, not innuendo, not the wheelbarrows full of c**pola that the media casts about to see what will stick. You mention Ukraine looking like the bad guys (which everyone agrees the previous Ukraine administration WAS corrupt as hell), or giving Russia a foothold in the Middle East (I think you mean Syria, which is and has been a Russian proxy since before any of us were born). Nothing you want Trump admonished for is any different than where we stood under Bush 1, Bush 2, Clinton or Obama.

And in fact we stand better in the following areas.
ISIS - in 2015 - 2017 their caliphate area in Iraq/Syria had up to 282000 sq kilometers. In 2016 the State Department labelled ISIS "The greatest threat globally" by 2019 they were down to 200 sq kilometers.

Syria - when Trump took office, with ISIS spread throughout and multiple factions vying for land. agree or not Trump made the strategic decision not to get enmeshed in a russian proxy country's civil war, and limited military engagements to ISIS targets. The result was massively less casualties in the Syrian population

Time Period/Pro-government forces/Anti-government forces/Civilians/Grand Total (inc. unidentified)
201517,668 killed23,601 killed13,021 killed54,574 killed
201614,771 killed23,431 killed14,100 killed52,589 killed
201710,771 killed14,064 killed13,369 killed34,700 killed
20184,522 killed8,663 killed6,776 killed20,130 killed
20192,968 killed4,727 killed3,488 killed11,244 killed

Iran and Terrorism - In 2016, same article, Iran was listed as the top state sponsor of terrorism, Kerry acknowledged the some of the money that Iran got back was funneled to that terrorism. From the 2019 Global Terrorism Index
Quote:
Deaths from terrorism fell for the fourth consecutive year,
after peaking in 2014. The decline in deaths corresponds with
the military successes against ISIL and Boko Haram, with
the total number of deaths falling by 15.2 per cent between
2017 and 2018 to 15,952. The largest fall occurred in Iraq,
which recorded 3,217 fewer deaths from terrorism in 2018,
a 75 per cent decrease from the prior year. For the first time
since 2003, Iraq is no longer the country most impacted by
terrorism.
ISIL’s decline continued for the second successive year.
Deaths attributed to the group declined 69 per cent, with
attacks declining 63 per cent in 2018. ISIL now has an
estimated 18,000 fighters left in Iraq and Syria, down from
over 70,000 in 2014.
Ukraine - AFTER the previous administration allowing/not intervening to stop Russia's takeover Crimea and refusing to send lethal aid to Ukraine's government. The Trump administration pushed lethal aid through. Ukraine's army has stood the initial invasions, and Russia and Ukraine are in talks to resolve the war. We let Ukraine down when Russia invaded them under the Obama administration. Trump has helped get more German and French aid in addition to US aid. Trump has increased oil exports to northern Europe - a direct threat to a Russian national interest, their oil exports to Europe
Quote:
As OPEC’s efforts to balance the oil market bear fruit, U.S. producers are reaping the benefits - and flooding Europe with a record amount of crude.
...
Now, the relatively high prices brought about by that pact, coupled with surging U.S. output, are making it harder to sell Russian, Nigerian and other oil grades in Europe, traders said.

“U.S. oil is on offer everywhere,” said a trader with a Mediterranean refiner, who regularly buys Russian and Caspian Sea crude and has recently started purchasing U.S. oil. “It puts local grades under a lot of pressure.”

U.S. oil output is expected to hit 10.7 million bpd this year, rivaling that of top producers Russia and Saudi Arabia.
NATO - in 2014 only 3 countries paid the 2%, the US, Greece and the UK. In 2019 9 countries made the 2% mark, and all but 2 countries increased their contributions substantially. Further, from 2016 to 2019 NATO defense expenditures increased by 3-5% per year while US expenditures as a percentage of our GDP actually decreased. In addition the US built two ABM complexes in Romania and Poland that specifically outraged Russia/Putin.

Bottomline
you guys whine and cry about Trump somehow making this country less safe - worse off, but ignore the reality and listen/parrot back innuendos, lies, and scare tactics.
Terrorism is down
ISIS is out of play
The US is now an Oil Exporting country
NATO is spending more on its own behalf and has strengthened allies closest to Russia.
Russia has no more land or holdings then the day Trump took office, and is held in check in the Donbass region of Ukraine by Ukrainian forces trained and armed by the US.
The US economy has continued the growth started under Obama and extended record unemployment numbers across the spectrum of the US


Thus endeth my rant.

Re: When is Enough ,Enough?

It's an Opinion piece but it 's right on the money.



https://www.yahoo.com/news/trumps-da...100014486.html

Trump justice: He's using his office to reward friends, punish enemies and tarnish America


I was concerned when the punchline “Donald Trump” came to be preceded by the title “president.” But my beloved DOJ was filled with career prosecutors whose dedication and integrity would keep the ship on course — even if the storm lasted four years.

I was confident that the traditions that made the Justice Department the most respected law enforcement organization in the world would surely allow it to weather any attorney general Trump could install.

But Trump has commandeered the department and sent a clear message: “Investigate me or people close to me and I will undercut years of your hard work, trash your reputation on Twitter, and create a Hobson’s choice between your integrity and your ability to earn a living. And if you pick the former, I will issue a pardon and undo all you worked for anyway

Since Republican senators refused to remove Trump from office, there’s nothing in his path. Trump is certainly getting no push back from Attorney General William Barr, who has revealed himself to be the second coming of Roy Cohn — Trump’s former personal attorney who was disbarred due to his sleazy legal tactics.

Destructive Trump-Barr alliance

Barr’s first order of business was to release a misleading summary of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report — effectively urinating on what should have been a bonfire that burned Trump’s presidency to the ground. Then, Barr stonewalled congressional efforts to do what an honest reading of Mueller’s report should have done.

Things have only gotten worse since Trump survived his Senate impeachment trial. For a start, Barr has said he must personally approve any investigation into corruption by a presidential candidate or campaign. That’s the DOJ equivalent of a GPS warning: "Red light camera ahead."



But it was mission accomplished for Trump and Barr. On Thursday, Stone was sentenced to 40 months in prison, substantially less than the seven to nine years requested by the Stone prosecutors.

A similar sequence occurred after Trump expressed unhappiness with the prosecution of his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn. Prosecutors who had recommended up to six months in prison later said probation would be appropriate. And Barr has now ordered a “re-investigation” of Flynn’s case, presumably to undermine Flynn’s guilty plea.

Failing institutions: Stone prison term: Will courts hold Trump accountable after Congress, Mueller fall short?

Pardoning the swamp, not draining it
Trump does not always need Barr. When he can manipulate justice alone, he does, as he showed last week when he issued 11 pardons and commutations. Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, convicted of trying to sell Barack Obama’s Senate seat, was immediately released from prison. Trump also pardoned one of Rudy Giuliani’s former business partners, whose family happened to donate $85,000 to a Trump Victory fund and $150,000 to the Republican National Committee.

Every person reading this should be angry that they would still be sitting in prison if they committed the same crimes as the people Trump pardoned. That’s because Trump has created a separate system of justice for his friends, political allies, and wealthy donors. Trump didn’t drain the swamp, he pardoned it.

Re: When is Enough ,Enough?

i will agree:

Trump has not solved the middle east and there are still potential fires there. Again no other president since 1948 has ever either.

Obama did things, such as start a period of growth, or lift the crude oil ban, which Trump's policies have continued and built upon.

The term snowflake is equivalent to trumpette and namecalling is childish. And Trump uses that childishness aggressively

As for the russian footprint in the middle east, the world will never allow a vacuum. Most of the US, and I think most liberal activists, wanted the US to not get embroiled in any more mideast wars over oil, so there is this mixed goal of getting out of the never ending war cycle and maintaining influence. I will concede that Trump hasn't found the perfect balance of maintaining influence vs extractating US from embroilment, anymore than any other president since 1948.


My point was, and is, that the claim that Trump is destroying the US is overreactive and fueled mostly by innuendo. I did not say we now live in a bubble wrapped world where only unicorns and rainbows exist. We all know that is not the case

Well written and yes, I agree worst case scenarios have not come to fruition. I guess the Dems (and many republicans) apology would be "Thanks for not killing us Donald Trump ... yet". Thats the tone I got.

Iran -- I dont think their response is over ... at all. Iran will almost always be an asymetrical proxy war. I did think things would have escalated more overtly than they did so far. As the writer did acknowledge .. "The calamitous war they envisioned, however, has not come to pass. They were right, though, that there would be devastating consequences. Iran retaliated by firing missiles at a U.S. base in Iraq, leaving at least 109 American troops with traumatic brain injuries. The Iranians mistakenly downed a civilian airliner, killing its 176 passengers, and hostilities between Iran and the U.S. remain dangerously high."

N Korea - we are no closer to a real resolution today then the day Trump took office. And the same could be said for every president ever. Republicans will say at least Trump tried to open up dialogue and it didnt work. Dems will say Trump got played for a photo shoot that benefits Kim greatly for propaganda and they didnt have to give up a single thing.

-------------------

Article asks - should the dems admit that Trump's foreign policy actions have not led to worst case scenarios? I dont know, seems odd. Everyone was thinking and saying the killing of Sol was a dangerous escalation and COULD lead to war w Iran. Because it was a dangerous escalation that could led to war. That it increased the chances a "mistake" could be made. And a mistake was made, Iran shot down a civilian airplane bc they thought it was US.

Should I thank my dog for not getting into the trash or shitting in my house?

Trumps unpredictability I do think has benefits after decades of foreign diplomacy defined as appeasement and de-escalation. But I dont think Trump has accomplished anything with N Korea and if Obama tried that, hannity would have been incensed an American president is giving respectability/acknowldgement to a dictator etc ..

Trump is negotiating with the freaking Taliban and was set to have them come to Camp David? wtf was that? taliban just killed like 8 us troops this month, taliban is killing US troops regularly and we are now negotiating with them. Could you imagine Hannity if Obama was secretly going to have the freaking Taliban come onto US soil at camp david for tea and negotiations?

---------------------

Trumps biggest foreign policy win where his detractors (graham, repubs and dems) may apologize ... is just getting out of the civil war in Syria. I wish we could have helped more but we had to get out of there imo. Let russia, turkey, iran, syria fight it out.

Also China, I do not mind taking on China. Actually, I like it. There was bipartisan support to challenge china for IP stealing, cyber theft and forcing companies who do biz in china to share intelligence. The only diffirence of opinion was how strong or weak to address it. Anything less than strong would not work imo and trump went strong. And Trump didnt have to. he could have avoided dealing w China, not taking a hit to his economy, not having farmers need subsidies .. basically taking on china was bad for his re-election but good for the US.

Phase 1 of the deal does not address any of that (in earnest from what I read, it duplicates what is already on paper in terms of stealing).

trump second term - probably the only thing he would do that I would be happy about is doubling down on china. I think China was slow playing this to see if he wins 2020. If he wins 2020, China may need to make some real concessions .. but any deal with china is just writing on paper, its the enforcement and confirmation that is the hard part to ensure.

----

I think Trump's abrupt foreign policy has been helpful in some ways in some situations ... i think the writer could have found 2 better examples honestly. Irans response has just begun and NK is a dud.

Syria and China are the better examples but one deals w leaving an allie for dead and the other made our economy take a hit so there is lots of room for a reasonable counter argument i suppose.

When the POTUS doubts the IA’s information and does so publicly it destroys the faith they, and their contacts have in us. When someone doubts, even slightly, our word (trump represents our country) that can be devastating. I think you are underestimating the power of tweets/words of the POTUS can have on our standing in the world.
