The Trump Presidency...

And.... Pulse coded moduation or Time difference..... how to have your flavour of G5 COVID in old 1976.
Mick. I have no idea whatsoever what that post means.

Any chance of elaborating because at the moment you seem to be living up to your user name.
 
In fairness, he is increasingly looking like all talk. The US cities are in crisis and he talks big. If he won't act now, when will he?
He could always make a deal with people. After all, he is the greatest deal-maker the world has ever seen.

Oh.

Ah.

Right....

Ok.... using the same radio frequencies and the same military modulation medium as in 1976..... just they are now they are now very clever G5..... and using G4 ....... and G3........Poor old COVID 1976 infected me.

G stands for Generation.

That's me trying to leave the techno out..... but if you want to talk super teeny tiny slots in a PCM, lets go G5

Remember, the phone does all the work..... the base station is thick as fcuk.

I think that threshold was breached some time ago, Kenya only kept quiet until now out of politeness.

Perhaps a half Kenyan-half American winner of the Nobel Peace Prize might be a suitable emissary to the failed State?

Well she's already dead so unlikely to be killed again - which is a definite plus point, although seeing a corpse plastered in paintballs on the porch of their residence might not be the look the Police are 'aiming' for...

She's definitely not a Bugsy family member then.

An intriguing op ed, and a situation I hadn't considered possible, but reading the article, maybe a runner come November.

'What if Trump loses the election in November, fails to secure his second term, but still refuses to leave the White House? What happens then?

'When the question first cropped up, my automatic reaction was to scoff and laugh: don’t be silly, I’d say. How on Earth could that happen? He’d have to go. It’s the law. It’s a democracy. He’d be dragged out of the White House whether he liked it or not. But once you get past the craziness of the premise – and haven’t we been taught that there’s nothing too crazy for the Trump presidency – the lessons of the last four years don’t point to an optimistic answer.

'Do you really believe that if Trump loses in November he’ll go quietly? It’s an inevitability that Trump will claim the election is a fix if he loses. The US Supreme Court – which stepped into the disputed presidential election in 2000, ruling in favour of George W Bush – is tilted towards the Republicans. Five justices were appointed by Republican presidents – with Brett Kavanaugh Trump’s most infamous nominee – and four by Democrat presidents. Republican place-men have shown themselves either incapable of standing up to Trump, or happy to collude with Trump, since 2016 – from links with Russia to refusing to condemn the president’s worst excesses.

'When it comes to Trump, there’s one thing you can depend upon: he tells you what he’s thinking. About a year ago, he said this: “I can tell you I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump – I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough – until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad”.'

I mentioned this some time ago which is why he needs a very big defeat. A small margin will give him and his Trumpets the momentum to fight the cry that it was stolen or fixed.

I would think that a lot of the GoP will be considering him very closely as he has now shown, even to them he is incapable for leading. I know it is accepted that the sitting/golfing president is automatically the parties candidate but could the party remove their backing and select another.

Both are not from the top draw and for many it will be a case of the best worst choice. That brings in the possibility that an independant could run and suck votes from both. The danger is that too many votes will leave the Dems and by default give Trump and victory or close defeat. The other possibility is that as both are bad the turnout is very low giving Trump the win again.

Agree with you; there's not much good news there!

655 false statements from President Donald Trump, from when his coronavirus task force began meeting in late January until May 3. By far, Trump's most repeated false claim was that he had "banned" travel from China.

They aren't a ban: they contain exemptions for US citizens, permanent residents, many of the family members of both groups, and some other types of people. Trump inaccurately described the restrictions on 41 separate occasions during this 14-week period, more than he made any other individual false claim.

Trump also exaggerated 17 times about the scope of his March travel restrictions on many (but not all) European countries. And he 17 times uttered his debunked assertion that China, not Americans, is paying the cost of his tariffs on imported Chinese products.

Undeterred by the pandemic, Trump kept using a bunch of his old favorite false claims. (No, he is not the one who got the Obama-era Veterans Choice program passed; no, he has not always protected patients with pre-existing conditions.) But he also created entire new categories of pandemic-specific dishonesty.

Trump made 71 false claims about the pandemic and travel. He made 37 about coronavirus testing. This includes one of his most infamous and most egregious false claims of the crisis -- his March 6 declaration that "anybody that wants a test can get a test" --

and 12 renditions of perhaps his most absurd pandemic false claim, the insistence that the Obama administration left him bad or old tests for this new virus for which there could not have been a test until Trump's presidency.

Trump also made 24 false claims about ventilators and the Strategic National Stockpile. Ten of these were versions of his claim that he was left entirely empty stockpile shelves by Obama. In reality, Obama left thousands of ventilators and various other supplies.

One indication of the brazenness of Trump's dishonesty: he made 12 false claims about what it was he himself had said in the past -- sometimes things he had said just the day prior, sometimes in the very same briefing.

In theory, the daily White House coronavirus briefings gave the President a chance to inform Americans about the crisis.

In practice, they became modified campaign rallies -- a nearby stage on which Trump could be Trump, with all the usual boasting, rambling, and disregard for truth.

Trump made 16 false claims at the briefing on April 6, a marathon session where he appeared for more than 95 minutes. He made 14 more at the April 13 briefing, where he appeared for more than 100 minutes.

We counted 23 briefings in which the President made five or more false claims.
Trump's three most dishonest events during this 14-week period all came before he stopped traveling because of the pandemic: 21 at a January rally in Des Moines, 19 at a February rally in Las Vegas, 18 at a March Fox News town hall in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

But Trump also made 16 false claims at a pandemic-related Fox News "virtual town hall" at the Lincoln Memorial in early May.
I'm surprised you believe this garbage as gospel.

Who are you really?
