The Trump Presidency...

We rollout at 0800, will be out in the field by 0915.
Seriously Jonesy - Take some good Pics of the trip. Landscape, Terrain, the Hide etc, and post them in the Shooting Forum, I'm sure lots of members would love to see them.
 
Well you might consider it hype, but as you don't live here how can you tell me the impact Obama Care had on my bottom line?

The late departed McCain killed the repeal of Obama care and helped cement certain parts of his legacy due to his voting patterns.

The deficit is going nowhere, so please carry on with that point. But the US economy is still chugging along, whilst yours is going to run into a brick wall with the Carbon
Trumpism is the absolute rejection of globalism in favour of American Nationalism.
Trumpism is the foolish ideology of isolation and idiotic policies.
 
Trumpism is the absolute rejection of globalism in favour of American Nationalism.
It tends to work better in countries which haven't based their rise to prominence and wealth on globalism and their centrality to the international order.

Has anyone explained that to the multitude of American multinational corporations?

Or is globalism defined as “we will take your money, but that’s about it from us”.

One does not have to like others or embrace their ideals to conduct business with them. The U.K. is a great example of why to avoid globalism, as your stuck with the EU who are slowly eroding your national sovereignty one bit at a time.

Who can ignore the highlights of the the intelligent, internationalist, foreign policy, the US has displayed over the last fifty years?

Korea, Cuba, Vietnam, Israel, Iran, Afghanistan, Guatemala, Panama, Nicaragua, Grenada, Libya, Israel, Iraq, Somalia, Iran, Venezuela, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Syria.
 
'Baby Trump' Balloon Stabbed by deranged Trump supporter, Deflated Outside Alabama-LSU Game, Suspect Arrested.

I also noted the RWM spouting off about how Chump was met with thousands of cheers when he arrived at the game. Which could have been a better story had the students NOT been warned about losing game privileges had they thrown out the BOO'S!

Everything Trump touches turns to shit.
Alabama-LSU had not lost a home game in FOUR years until fatty turned up,
Alabama lost at home yesterday with Fatso in attendance.

It appears the killer also raised $16k for taking out the balloon. Sadness abounds.

Korea, Cuba, Vietnam, Israel, Iran, Afghanistan, Guatemala, Panama, Nicaragua, Grenada, Libya, Israel, Iraq, Somalia, Iran, Venezuela, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Syria.
Korea - 3 years later Korea has more missiles now than ever.
Vietnam - Lost over 56,000 men, killed millions of Vietnamese to stave off communism. Vietnam is now Communist.
Israel - Just how is that 'Deal of the Century' working out that was promised in 2018?
Afghanistan - Fought the Taliban, installed a puppet government, negotiating with the Taliban to let them have it back.
Iraq - 1st GW good, 2nd GW 4,400 soldiers lost their lives and over 31,000 injured. Civilian deaths are estimated at over 600,000. Created ISIS. Iraq is now in a massive civil war.
Guatemala, Panama, Nicaragua and other CA Countries, American Trade Deal Forced said countries to accept farming policies that decimated their own farming industry and what little manufacturing they had which led to poverty which has led to the mass illegal immigration at the Mexican Border.
Venezuela - US Sanctions have forced VZ to move towards Russia for trade and allow Russian Nuclear Bombers to be stationed less tan a 2 hour flight to the USA.
Syria - Troops are leaving - no they are not - oh yes they are - we need the oil, oh no they are not. Here you go Russia, Iran help yourselves to the Region.
Iran - Are now taking steps to develop their own Nuclear Weapons. Remind everyone again how Chump's negotiations with Iran are coming along again.
Cuba - Obama normalized relations with Cuba which benefited both Cuba and the USA but because Obama did it Chump just had to remove it.
 
The Conspiracy Theories A Conservative Must Believe Today
by David Atkins. November 10, 2019.

As Donald Trump and his conservative defenders begin to construct a conspiracy theory that Adam Schiff personally orchestrated a massive conspiracy to entrap Trump in Ukraine, it’s worth noting just how many conspiracy theories you have to believe in just to be a standard Republican these days. Political parties in all eras have a number of questionable orthodoxies, but the sheer number of conspiracy theories that make up mainstream Republican ideology is remarkable. A quick rundown would include but not be limited to;

1. The belief that 10,000 climate scientists all around the world are either stupid, or engaged in a massive criminal conspiracy to concoct bad science in order to receive…more government grant funding. And that no other scientists are exposing it.

2. The belief that there is a giant conspiracy across all of news media to make Republicans look bad and elect Democrats–in spite of continually unfair press coverage of candidates like both Bernie Sanders *and* Hillary Clinton–in exchange for…what? It’s never really clear.

3. The belief without evidence that there is a giant conspiracy across local, state and federal elections officials all across the country to engage in mass wide-scale voter impersonation fraud. Needless to say, this would be insanely complicated, incredibly risky and hugely inefficient.

4. The belief that that there is a giant conspiracy to push migrants to the border in order to change the demographics of the U.S., in order to…increase taxes and gain “control”? This is a pretty nonsensical conspiracy, but it’s among the most common. It’s no surprise that this sort of rhetoric echoes fascist antisemitic tropes, which is why George Soros is so commonly included.

5. The belief that there was a deep conspiracy to elect a man named “Barack Hussein Obama” to the presidency in order to implement socialism in America…and that the shadowy socialist cabal picked a guy named “Barack Hussein Obama” for the job. Or made up his birth certificate from scratch and decided on one of the most unlikely presidential names imaginable in his birth year.

6. The belief that the “Deep State” entrapped Trump with Russia entanglements before the 2016 in order to derail his presidency if he won, but didn’t use it to stop him from winning, but were blindsided when he won, but have stymied his every move afterward.

7. The belief that there is a giant unexposed conspiracy of 100,000s of teachers/faculty across PreK and higher education to indoctrinate young people. Rather than, you know, people not buying into garbage and bigotry once they learn something.

8. The belief that a tiny group of obscenely rich industrialists are the only truthtellers, the only ones looking out for the “forgotten man”, while millions of middle class professionals and civil servants are corrupt liars. This one is particularly ironic, as it represents a twisted funhouse version of Marxist theory.

9. The belief that millions of people want to disarm them to leave them defenseless against looters, burglars and Liberal Fascism ™, rather than just want their kids not to get shot at school again and again by trigger-happy Rambo cosplayers.

10. The belief that Green Energy is a scam to give connected companies money and make coal miners homeless, rather than an effort to save millions of lives from climate change, pollution and black lung.

11. The belief that social services are an intentionally corrupt scam to keep minority groups on the “Democrat Plantation” ™, rather than a good-faith effort to make up for the predations of a brutal market in a society riddled with horrific structural racism.

It goes on and on. And that’s just the standard stuff you hear from most GOP politicians on any given day. It doesn’t even get into the really weird conspiracies that millions of Republican voters actively believe, like QAnon, secret 5th column communists, pedophile illuminati, etc. It also doesn’t touch the dangerously errant shibboleths like “tax cuts pay for themselves” or “anyone can escape poverty if they really want to” which, while not conspiracy theories, are false articles of faith with destructive consequences.

Again, it would be one thing if these beliefs were limited to the GOP base. But it’s not just the rubes. It’s the Senators and the Representatives. It’s the President and his lawyers. They all feed from the paranoid conservative infotainment trough, which has to up the ante every year in order to make the world as it really is match up somehow with false conservative ideological orthodoxy.

It’s conspiracy theory turtles all the way down. And needless to say, in a two-party system, it’s incredibly dangerous for one party to be this far gone from reality.

see, amazing record of successful international relationships and nation building

I’m particularly impressed at the short-term outlook of many of your responses - Iran for example, where you appear to have forgotten entirely about the CIA, the Shah and the overthrow of Mossadeq, the hostage crisis, or the weapons shipments.

i can’t imagine for one second Why Trumps ‘isolationism’ might be a good idea, or so popular with voters

By the way, happy third anniversary of this:
