    Every time trump says, The like you have never seen before, I think of the Baldrick the servant from Black Adder a british comedy series who also says, I have a cunning plan.

    Stephen’s Dubya voice is excellent! I love it. Much as Bush Jr wasn’t a great president, he makes trump look really dumb and I liked Bush’s Texas accent. Lol

    I always had an issue accepting the arguments against democracy made by Plato, Aristotle, and Socrates, but after what Trump has done to what I thought was a stable representative democracy, i'm convinced Trump somehow provided a better case against democracy than they ever could have. Now that's ironic.

    As someone who classified a lot of Top Secret intelligence in my life, I can say that the source and methods MUST be protected... but that the substance MUST be more definitive then vague assurances, and sometimes it can be hard to figure out how to But I think we could prove that the President is lying or there was a real credible and imminent threat just by asking 3 questions.... What did the CRITIC report state? There WAS a CRITIC report right? Can you prove a CRITIC report was sent? There would HAVE to be a CRITIC report that was issued if the president is telling the truth and was responding to an imminent threat that his intelligence sources made him aware of. There would be no CRITIC report if he was lying, and simply taking his own "initiative" to assassinate a foreign official. We don't even have to read the report, just verify that one was sent around the time of Soleimani's assassination.

    There ARE sensible republicans in office still, thank God. It’s been infuriating to hear these people continuously defend Trumps action, actions that not only affect us Americans but them as well but for some reason trump is the hill they’re willing to die climbing up for. He’s not worth it, thank you Senator Lee!

    Our trump is a disaster.

    USMCA DEAL DONE= Promise made and kept CHINA TRADE DEAL DONE- Promise made and kept ...meantime democrats cant get over it

    • Pajaro-Bird

      Mark, The USMCA (replaces job killing nafta) is also done, and passed by the senate. . You really hate America dont you?

    • Pajaro-Bird

      Mark... The China -US Trade deal phase 1 was signed. I goes one to phase 2. You really hate this country dont you?

    • Mark Smith
      Mark Smith

      China trade deal not done. Just barely started and not even that until after Trump loses the election. The entire Tariffs is a bungle costing Americans trillions and jobs. USMCA deal = $2 TRILLION in debt. That money could have extended SS for another 50 years, Paid for all of our school debt. Gotten medical insurance for the entire country. Instead he wasted it on more antiquated military that hasn't won a war in 70 years. Just another vehicle make the rich richer and stick it to the Middle class. What Republicans see as a big wins are the things that are destroying the country

    "It was magical and we're not gonna compromise it." is what you say when you don't wanna tell your buddies you hooked up with someone and don't wanna tell them who it is.

    Time for another deleted comment. So, from the administration that has destroyed military personnel lives from leaked photos to twitter. Photos from recon satellites which gave away the position of the satellite, again posted to twitter. And their stance is that congress / senate doesn't need to know because could be leaked? No.

    Yeah, Mike you talk now but you were a Trump defender before the Iran shit. I hope you are strong enough to hold the line--don't let a crack blemish the Constitution because once a crack sets it cannot be stopped. You are Congress, not a Trump groupie and I hope you'll uphold your duty in the 3rd branch of gov't.

    The pentagon felt they had to get some of these senators together to let them know who’s in control. “We’re doing this. You guys shut the fxxk up”, is, in a nutshell, what they were told. Remember this, keep it in mind and you will see other indications.

    He was the commander of a designated terrorist organization and targeted under the Patriot Act not Article two, so the imminent attack doesn't apply. We didn't target Iran's official but rather we targeted a terrorist who is an Iranian Official. Getting a job doesn't give you a green light to kill at least 603 US service members ( mostly 18-23 yo) or to blow the legs and arms off a couple thousand more. Then you say he was a bad guy but... Bad guy? but?

    Trump is a con artist 100% of the time. Always trying to stay one step ahead of the reporting and totally avoiding accountability. He has to remain aloof of accountability or he goes to jail, because he is a constant fraud in every activity, every business, every deal. Creating a shock doctrine false flag situation for the nation to focus on, is old style Republican/oligarchy strategy to invent a way out of their own incompetence, futility and criminality.
