The Trump Presidency...

Does someone need to do a welfare check on his press secretary?

Is The Hollywood elite the same as the Film Actors Guild, because they are evil.

Frequently, quoted but not often read; Machiavelli is still a wise guide

ONE error into which Princes, unless very prudent or very fortunate in their choice of friends, are apt to fall, is of so great importance that I must not pass it over. I mean in respect of flatterers
Machiavelli's The Prince, Chapter 23 'That Flatterers Should Be Shunned'

Before that is a chapter I think he would have been wise to consult.

THE CHOICE of Ministers is a matter of no small moment to a Prince. Whether they shall be good or no depends on his prudence, so that the readiest conjecture we can form of the character and sagacity of a Prince, is from seeing what sort of men he has about him
Machiavelli's The Prince, Chapter 22 Of the Secretaries of Princes

Staff turnover has been a constant; and the exit interviews a mixed experience.
 
Having watched the Biden town hall/tea and biscuits at the church rigorous debate. I can empathise somewhat with your affliction..... Biden with his little card in his pocket to tell him how much money can be made by corporate tax rises, then how he plans to rebuild the american economy, whilst those self same companies have lost money because of covid inactivity.

Don't forget he has a plan to have 'Made in America' stamped on goods as well, that is about a tired an idea that you can get and goes back to the 1970s for inspiration is worrisome if you look Debt to GDP(98%) and the effects higher taxes has on economic growth.

Nothing wrong with "Q"-cards ;0)

As for buy American, both Republican and Democrat have pushed this policy. Having a strong American market for domestic good is surely a good thing? It keeps the money sloshing about the economy, keeps Americans in jobs, gives them a bit of pride in making top grade products. But if the production and profits are kept in the USA, then it will subject to US tax laws. This might be a problem for big business who like moving money around the world to avoid paying tax.

While Trump has given tax cuts to the people he has also reduced federal spending, so it's like robbing Peter to pay Paul. Will Biden raise taxes for the benefit of the people? We will need to wait and see.
 
Thats a harsh assessment of Trump, harsh but fair

I don't think raising the corporate income tax rate is going to be a great idea at this time. I wouldn't be surprised if companies just found ways to $hitcan more workers, which might happen anyways if Q4 goes to hell. The income tax rates for individuals making over $400,000 will come back to bite him. As many of his core supporters in places like NY and CA will get hit with that., and I hope they enjoy the increased taxation if he manages to win.

Buy American is pretty popular and will become more so. I think the Rona will speed up the disenfranchisement with parts of the world and Europe in particular.

Thats a recent change - Under Obama 'its a Global economy' and manufacturing was laid waste in globalist trade treaties and green standards that forced them over seas.

I think it was a fella called Argirakis from the audience, who asked the Question and Biden made it absolutely plain that NO new, or increased taxes for anyone on less than 400k.....

On buying American/British, it depends on incentives for business and if business are paying more tax on top of a 2021 covid hangover, where is the economic growth coming from ? certainly the democrats, aren't noted for spending money wisely and for generating a return on taxpayers money.

However many years of supporting Global Growth is Mr Biden and now volte face, as a result of Trump. Whoever said Trump did not have any positive effects and they're are largely to change the other side, into positions that were once considered bigoted.... The only flaw is once in power, you can expect nothing but warm words as I don't believe he has had a damascene conversion, on the benefits of protectionism to your own people.

Before anyone pounces, it also doesn't explain where growth is going to come from, in terms of paying debts and rebuilding the economy from a green position is a myth that no leader has achieved, except dodgy chinese wind and solar power manufacturers.

This is one hell of an interview.


Donald Trump got impeached for something Joe Biden did. Donald Trump was investigated for 3 years for something Hillary Clinton did. Time for justice.

Facebook & Twitter allowed the fraudulent claim of Russian Collusion to dominate for 3 years. They could not abide the Hunter Biden news for a single day.

I agree to a certain extent but he was trying to avoid a trade war following the banking crisis. He campaigned on a strong Buy American policy which ended up getting watered down.

No one can claim they are impartial. Its clear to everyone.

Includes but limited to:

Discretionary Spending, Per Person

$2,260
+$171 under Trump.

CA State Democrats are showing the U.S the model the national party is aiming for- Its high taxes, excessive regulations, wanton waste and corruption and not business friendly.

The reason this resulted in massive media blackouts is because Joe Biden is implicated in the content.
Millions and millions of dollars have exchanged hands to gain access to Biden's influence in the federal government.

No one gives a shit about his pissy-arsed little crackhead son. That's par for the course.
$1 Billion in taxpayer money withheld because a foreign government is investigating a company your crackhead son receives money from IS a big deal. Especially when that person is now running for president. It begs the question of what else might be sold using US money for his personal gain.

Interesting, so where is he making the savings on the federal spending?

Hmmmm, quite a few on this thread believe in bat shit theories so you are in good but stupid company.

148 meetings with the Russians demanded the FBI Investigate, in fact they would have been negligent if they hadn't. Trump WAS NOT EXONERATED. he was given a free pass by the Republicans.

This has more credibility than anything Rudy Guilliani could say or prove.

So if he had been sprayed and had his gun taken?
Don't think he'll be for the can buy I guess it depends on his legal team...
He was however acting as a licensed security guard when he in fact was not. As such he was in an area where the potential for conflict was high.

Had he been a private citizen in the Walmart parking lot and shot somebody that was going to give him a squirt of oc spray or mace, he would be justified to use lethal force.

But he was not, and he escalated to the use of lethal force right after he was smacked, which tends to get folks in trouble if you are somewhat trained. From the video it appears the deceased was tagged before he managed to spray the guard. It also appears that his charges didn't seem to be in mortal danger in that crowd either. Somebody got mouthy and instigated the conflict and he reacted poorly. Hence the 2nd Degree murder charge.

Some budget items were cut some budget items were increased by more than the budget savings. By touting the cuts yet skipping the increase Trump is being disingenuous as per his M.O.
