Donny says they’ll build a new US embassy in Jerusalem for just $150,000.

Man, I can’t believe this is the same guy who had an entire floor of his office tower burn out because there were no fire sprinklers.////////

Yeah, that’s what you want to go for with an official US government building in a VERY dangerous part of the world — a good bargain!

$150K apparently will go toward particle board, styrofoam, and lead paint. Oh, and the huge, gold-plated “TRUMP” sign on the top, so the people of Israel can know the name of their new golden cal…er, Lord and Savior.

IIRC, the $150,000 is basically to take a Consulate building and slap “US Embassy” signage on it. So they’ll have a small Embassy in Jerusalem, and a really big Consulate in Tel Aviv.

That’s pretty much what I’m expecting, for them to just “renovate” the current consulate by changing all the signs, putting in some new stationary, slap on some new paint, and pretend that it’s a “new” embassy.

well White House Admits Trump’s Infrastructure Promise Isn’t Happening

what with tax cuts, exploding deficits, excessive spending,

Trump’s promise to ‘build the next generation of roads, bridges, railways, tunnels, sea ports and airports that our country deserves’ appears destined to go unmet. We will always be able to look back on Trump’s first term and remember the many, many Infrastructure Weeks, which brought Americans of all walks of life together to appreciate the importance of transportation development. The real Infrastructure Week was not in any bill, it was in our hearts all along.”

It seems to me that Stephanie Clifford may have looked at the whole thing and realized she got railroaded by Trump and Cohen, via the attorney who was supposed to be representing her but really seems to be just a Trump stooge, and decided that she wanted to inflict as much damage as she possibly could.

The host singled out “the failing New York Times” in particular, rifling through the Times’ Friday print edition and noting that the news was nowhere to be found.

“I looked for the ‘five ISIS leaders captured’ in the failing New York Times, and in the print edition today, I have not seen it yet,” Hegseth said, employing President Trump’s favored title for the 166-year-old newspaper.

Earlier in the segment, host Steve Doocy had asked why no one was “talking about” the capture or “giving the president credit.” Hegseth added that “the so-called mainstream media that loves to hate this president” had repeatedly swept aside other similar “successes on the battlefield.”

There was just one problem: the Times had, indeed, covered the story. In fact, as Mediaite pointed out, the outlet was the first American publication to report the story in the United States, directly after Iraqi state TV had run a segment about it Wednesday morning.

On May 9, the Times ran an article by Baghdad bureau chief Margaret Coker, titled “Five Top ISIS Officials Captured in U.S.-Iraqi Sting.”

ooops…

It’s almost as if Fox News exists to be a Trump Propaganda network.

Q:Why do liberals discount protection from government tyranny as a benefit of the Second Amendment?

Michael Feely, Lived in the United States most of my life, know some of its history.
Updated Wed

A:When segregationist governments in the South were terrorizing civil rights marchers, where were the armed citizens against government tyranny?

When the United States rounded up Japanese Americans and put them in internment camps, where were the armed citizens against government tyranny?

When the United States government launched the war on drugs as an excuse to make sure black people and hippies could be suppressed, where were the armed citizens against government tyranny?

When state and federal governments herded protesters into “free speech zones” behind fences, where were the armed citizens against government tyranny?

When police officers routinely shoot black Americans and are let off with a warning, where were the armed citizens against government tyranny?

In the wake of the Patriot Act, extraordinary rendition, government authorized torture, the establishment of an American gulag at Guantanamo Bay and the US government murdering its own citizens without benefit of due process in Yemen, among other places, where were the armed citizens against government tyranny?

Right. Nowhere to be found.

The last time I can think of armed citizens actually standing up to tyrannical government was the Battle of Athens, and that was in 1946 - and the rebels’ success had a great deal more to do with their being numerous and battle-hardened WWII vets, facing off against a corrupt county, rather than state or federal government, than with the firearms involved.

These days, we have armed citizens like Cliven Bundy, standing firm against the oppression of the government demanding he pay use fees for the government-owned land his cattle graze on. And Ammon Bundy and his militia pals taking over a wildlife sanctuary. For some reason.

TL:DR? Liberals discount “protection from government tyranny as a benefit of the Second Amendment” thanks to the incredible rarity of cases where this benefit has actually materialized.

They think we’re unique, unlike every other country where the government has used the military against its people, and that the military will side with the citizens. It’s sounds like a great fantasy, but in all of the other situations, conditions have switched to where it looks like the use of the military would be more stabilizing, and when that happens, the military will go along.

re: #115 HappyWarrior

Snap. Great answer.

The main answer is that the Second Amendment says nothing of the kind. All it talks about is “the security of a Free State”. That’s all it’s about, is protecting The State. There’s nothing about personal gun ownership, either. It’s “the People’s” right to “keep and bear arms”, which we do. If they had meant “every man’s right” I assure you they would have said that.

re: #91 Blind Frog Belly White

Since Avenatti’s release of the Cohen information, I’ve heard a number of people questioning whether this really serves his client’s best interest. I thought about that, and I wondered whether they may be misapprehending his client’s wishes for the litigation.

It seems to me that Stephanie Clifford may have looked at the whole thing and realized she got railroaded by Trump and Cohen, via the attorney who was supposed to be representing her but really seems to be just a Trump stooge, and decided that she wanted to inflict as much damage as she possibly could. Kinda makes me wonder whether there’s someone paying the bills, a la Peter Thiel in the Hulk Hogan/Gawker thing.

I brought that up the other day. Even if she is paying the bills or a percentage because of the publicity that Avenatti is getting out of all of this…I would like to know how Stephanie came to meet Avenatti.

That’s their real gripe: not that the New York Times “didn’t cover” the story (well, they did, these RW hacks are just too lazy/stupid/hackish to have looked for it) - but that they didn’t shower Donald Trump with laudatory personal praise for … ummm .. whatever he did. Or in general. Because he’s the Preznit, and, ummm… reasons.

Hacks. And the “Failing New York Times”?? Newsflash, guys: when Donald Trump (or Steve Doocy, for that matter), finally shuffle off the mortal coil, their obituaries are going to printed in the NYT. The daily edition…..

re: #108 Aucun pays pour les vieux ennemis

Q:Why do liberals discount protection from government tyranny as a benefit of the Second Amendment?

The general idea of the people protecting themselves from government tyranny is part of a culture war that is as old as the Republic itself. In those early years, the debate between Federalists (Hamilton, Franklin, and to a certain extent Adams) and Anti-Federalists/Democratic-Republicans (most notably Jefferson and post-ratification Madison) was about the future of the nation - would it be a mercantile-urban based nation as Hamilton and Franklin anticipated or would we be a nation of yeomen farmers as Jefferson envisioned.

Our urban vs rural divide is, essentially, that same debate. The yeomen farmer/rural/small town sorts see government as something foreign and imposing, something that must be opposed for the sake of freedom in their own lives. The urbanites see government as a necessary tool for a functioning civil society when so many live in such close proximity.

Q:How did you become a liberal? What experiences influenced your beliefs the most?

Answer by Tracy McCue, Digital News Website Publisher
Answered Nov 26

A:I became a liberal because of Donald Trump. I’m 53. I voted Republican all my life. I live in a very small Conservative community in a conservative family in a deep red state. My attitude was always those of the majority because it was all I knew or chose to know. We shared the same experience and, perhaps, I was politically and intellectually lazy because I was never challenged to think any different.

And then Trump came around and rocked my world. From the start of his campaign, his absurdity and buffoonery made me rethink my long held positions. When I started to look at the world independently, I saw a conservative movement that was flawed both ethically, spiritually and racially. And, then, I quickly found out, people around me were not coming to the same conclusion as myself. I was stunned to see that so many people I knew my whole life, who were and are intelligent human beings, had formed a connection with this guy - with almost unconditional love. I must have missed the memo.

My political reawakening has been a two-edged sword. It has been exhilarating. I feel a freedom to no longer think a certain way. It is as if I have developed an intellectual skillset I didn’t know I had. Being a liberal or maybe it is simply free thinking, has opened up a whole new world.

But in some way, it has made me lonely. I no longer can relate with many of the people I have known all my life.

Holy shit.

Well that explains a few things - and also massively increases the likelihood that Trump could be removed from power by a simple to understand bribery scandal which is something much easier to prosecute him for, than a complicated to explain Russian oligarch based crim.e

I’d argue a lot of *viewers* haven’t done the research, so it’s wise to ask the question on camera for their benefit. Rachel Maddow asked him about it when he was on. And I’d bet money I don’t have that she already knew the answer when she asked the question.
