The Trump Presidency...

Judging by the various meltdowns I've come across wandering around the net last night it looks like the jig is up for Q Anon, like the Rapture, the Great Awakening isn't going to be a thing some of the Q cult were actually in tears. I got banned from a few streams for calling people mugs and punters but it was the best laugh I've had in ages.
There is some Queen of England stuff thrown in here for good measure.

 
Ask Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt, FDR, Truman, JFK, Nixon, Ford, , Carter, Reagan, Bush 41, Clinton all had assassination attempts or were assassinated
Going to be pretty hard to ask most of the since they're dead.
Yep, difficult as only one three of them's alive, and as he's a 2 are Democrat, completely untrustworthy anyway.;)

While very happy that the UN has publicly ridiculed Agent Orange for the buffoon he is, there's some interesting speculative analysis here.

What the world missed while it was busy laughing at Donald Trump

Welcome to Splendid isolation. Trump is a Nationalist and we will on that bandwagon for a long time now. The difference is that at least he is willing to call a Spade a Spade. The financial strings are also going to be cut, which is fine. The Germans and French can throw their money away and see how that goes.

China refused a U.S. warship entry to Hong Kong next month, days after Washington sanctioned the Chinese military for buying Russian weapons.


The U.S. consulate in Hong Kong confirmed on Wednesday that China had denied a request for the port call by the U.S. Navy’s amphibious assault ship the USS Wasp.




“The Chinese Government did not approve a request for a U.S. port visit to Hong Kong by the USS Wasp,” Darragh Paradiso, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Consulate in Hong Kong, said in an email. “We have a long track record of successful port visits to Hong Kong, and we expect that will continue.”


The vessel is part of a group based in Sasebo, Japan, and operating in the Indo-Pacific region.


Beijing’s move came after the U.S. last Thursday penalizedChina’s Equipment Development Department -- the agency that oversees the country’s defense technology -- and its director Li Shangfu for allegedly engaging in the purchase of Russian combat aircraft and S-400 surface-to-air missiles, which it called a violation of American sanctions.
Ian Storey, a senior fellow at the ISEAS Yusof Ishak Institute in Singapore specializing in China-U.S. relations, said last week’s sanctions were the “only reason” Beijing had denied the USS Wasp access to Hong Kong. “This is a tit-for-tat response, as China and Russia are really very annoyed about it,” he said.
The U.S. State Department said its actions against Li and his department weren’t intended to undermine the military capabilities or combat readiness of any country, but rather to impose costs on Russia in response to its interference in the U.S. election process.
It announced the moves as part of new efforts to enforce the Trump administration’s sweeping Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act. The act targets Russia’s defense and intelligence sectors, and was passed into law last year in response to Russian election interference, cyber attacks and aggression in Ukraine.
‘Showing Displeasure’
Beijing’s top naval officer on Tuesday also canceled a high-level meeting with his U.S. counterpart, Pentagon spokesman Lt. Col. Dave Eastburn told CNN. China’s military actions this week are a way of “showing displeasure without crossing the line into something more serious,” said Collin Koh Swee Lean, a research fellow at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies in Singapore.
Koh said China has employed similar tactics in the past, citing Beijing’s denial in 2016 of a U.S. carrier strike group’s request for a Hong Kong port visit during a period of heightened tensions between the two countries in the disputed South China Sea.
But given China’s attempts to resolve trade frictions with the Trump administration via conciliation, Koh said it was unlikely it would provoke the U.S. military into a more serious confrontation.
This week’s actions shouldn’t be seen as a stand-alone phenomena, he added.
“We need to look at the broader context of the ongoing trade war between the two countries,” he said. “In China, they are debating how they can respond and there are hawks who say, ‘we have to strike back.’”

Mea culpa. I could have sworn Jimmy popped his clogs a couple of years ago, and misread the Bush entry.

Mess Webley close at hand?:oops:

Seeing as though the alt right are into alt views, here are alt views to Trump's views:

Does America pay too much to the UN?

No Laughing Matter: U.N. Speech Shows Trump Thinks He’s the Boss of Everyone

Or in other words, Trump is misspeaking again.
 
As even the Russians are saying in the media, get your comfy chair and popcorn ready for this one! What could possibly go wrong!

'A day after President Trump appeared before the United Nations and made clear his disdain for a global approach to problem solving, he returns on Wednesday to wield the gavel at a meeting of the world organization’s most powerful body. Mr. Trump will lead a Security Council meeting on nonproliferation, as the body’s current president, a rotating position.'

Well, nothing is going wrong from the Russian point of view.

He is their candidate, after all.

This is exactly what they wanted. A lunatic ripping up decades of collective diplomacy, so that every international issue becomes bilateral and the biggest thug and bully (them) wins every dispute.
 
The difference is that at least he is willing to call a Spade a Spade.
Usually while wearing a pillowcase with eyeholes.

Trump seeks UN backing for Iran nuclear sanctions



US President Donald Trump has urged other members of the UN Security Council to work with America to ensure Iran never acquires a nuclear bomb.

He told the council that anyone who failed to comply with US sanctions on Iran would "face severe consequences".
he really doesn't get 'Soft power' and 'Diplomacy' dos he.

Did no one point out this was satire?
