  • Some were quick to criticize, no surprise, but NK's response shows that the door is not closed, nor do they want it closed.

    In my opinion, it was wrong to appoint Bolton and equally inflammatory for Bolton to refer to Libya. But, I do not pretend to know an ounce of the true details, nor what is intended.

    Just because Mr. Trump has not negotiated for governments before is of little concern to me. Those who supposedly have all this great experience have not done too well so why should I think they know better?

  • Some people think (or at least claim to think) that Trump doesn't know what he is doing. My unsolicited advice to them---don't play Texas Hold-em with him. And some people think he is obsessed with getting the Nobel Peace Prize. Really? His prize will be the peace. And the misery it brings to the left, knowing Trump did it. And I think we can all agree Trump is not on the same level as obummer. 😉

    For those that never got around to reading "The Art Of The Deal", or those who don't have the comprehension to understand it, they now have the opportunity to watch, in real time, the screen adaptation. But since their problem is more of the mind than the eyes or the ears, they still don't understand.

  • Trump cancelled the meeting, putting himself in the position of control. It was a gamble, but Kim showed his hand by NK's memo of response. NK is getting weaker every day as their people are starving. NK is a pawn of China, and Xi Jinping has given Kim his marching orders.

    As Fair share pointed out Trump wrote the book and is following it to the letter. His handling of this situation shows his understanding of the situation, the mindset of the other players, and his prowess at negotiation

  • It is apparently hard to criticize the President's actions right now. Too much chance of being proved wrong by saying he doesn't know what he is doing, or too new at it.

    The racist and misogyny comments have also quieted down with more and more actions (not words) proving it wrong. What are they cooking up in those anti-Trump minds? Stormy seemed to fizzle, the Russian investigation is becoming more of an embarrassment (or should be) with more FBI revelations about the FBI and Democrats.

    So.... what is next?

  • Even more telling than the lack of comments is the dormancy of the DNC.

    No big message they're promoting other than anti-Trump which is falling flat, and their promise to raise taxes, which is as popular as a klan rally in Harlem.

  • Don't worry yourselves ,Mueller is still finding witches.I find that it is getting boring talking to Humpty Dumpty's hypnotized sheep.

    It was so sad today to see Humpty tweet to make Memorial Day all about him as usual, a draft dodger.

    -- Posted by lets be real on Mon, May 28, 2018, at 3:52 PM
  • LBR, while your posts are predictable, I have to admit I was getting concerned by your absence. Hope your health is good.

    I believe Trump's military status was classified as educational and medical deferments. A true draft dodger would have been "Someone who illegally evades the draft, as opposed to a conscientious objector, who is granted official, legal exemption from military duty."

    Many burned their draft cards or left the country as a number of public show business figures promised if Trump was elected. Guess you can never tell.

    If Mr. Trump did not say anything on Memorial Day, he would be criticized for that so I supposed it was a damned if you do and damned if you don't proposition. He chose to honor the dead.

  • I'm glad to see that unreal was (physically) healthy enough to respond recently. After watching Trump's Nashville rally I can just imagine her popping a few extra Keppra to try and get out of the conniption fit she must be having right about now. The dems gotta be kicking themselves for letting Trump manipulate them into supporting MS-13, NoKo, Iran, and Hamas. But I do give them the credit that they could have done it on their own. Either way, they seem to be stuck with it now. Trump was right. You have to respect them for sticking together. And it will be fun watching them stick together during the midterms with their standard bearers being a used-up steamy porn star and the effeminate little hog-boy.

    -- Posted by fair share on Tue, May 29, 2018, at 8:41 PM
  • Iran, porn star and Hamas are names I know am familiar with but ms13 koko and the little hog boy leave me blank. Guess inwill do a little googling.

    -- Posted by stevemills on Wed, May 30, 2018, at 6:44 AM
  • MS-13 is the Hispanic gang terrorising the US and Central America.

    NoKo is North Korea.

    The effeminate little hog-boy is david hogg, an alleged survivor of the Florida school shooting. Besides trying to get our guns taken away,he is encouraging people to disrupt business at grocery stores.

  • The US economy added nearly a quarter million jobs last month, driving unemployment to the lowest level since 2000.

    Black unemployment, which was already at a record low, dropped even further.

    The unemployment rate for women is the lowest since 1953.

  • And business is booming. I heard Walmart is sold out of Depends. Apparently with the breakout of peace with North Korea and the prospect of nuclear war not even a faint glow in the rearview, the chicken little libs are making a run on them. Of course, it could also have to do with their realization they pushed the Russia thing all the way into the corrupt oval office of their beloved o'dumber. But they still give brock all the credit for Trump's economy.

  • It is a week of bad news. For some anyway.

    How can they get traction to dump Trump when all this positive news keeps coming out and the investigations keep proving to be dry wells?

    And now they saying Trump was never the target? They’re good, but how long can they keep it up before more Americans see them for (fill innthe blanks)?

    I expected poor losers but this goes deeper than just losing an election and reinforces why they had to lose. Using a swamp to describe the political environment in Washington is appropriate (for both major parties).

  • But fair Humpty Dumpty says all the unemployment rates are fake,and we know you believe everything he says.He should be happy Obama handed him a good economy to build on.The Obama years began in the middle of the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression and ended with the highest level of household income ever recorded.In 2009 the unemployment rate was 10% and down to 4.8% when he left office and created 11.6 million jobs.Sorry but everyone knows the results you see now did not just happen just in the last year but took years,like 8 before.

  • Hey, unreal, call all your Russia conspiracy buddies. Prepare for more butthurt. After Trump talks to Li'l Kim he is gonna talk to Putin. Get your wiretaps and hyperbolic listening devices ready!

  • Lets be lying doing what she does best, even after being corrected NUMEROUS times.

    Odumbo did nothing to help unemployment. Under his "leadership" along with a democrat controlled congress, unemployment got worse. Unemployment started improving after dems started losing congressional seats.

    LBR-I know you're a bit, um, slow, but this is the fourth or fifth time this has been explained to you.

    I know facts don't really matter in the liberal echo chamber sites you like to browse, but in the REAL world facts count for everything.

    Might want to consider changing your screen name.

  • 500 glorious days!

    Thank you, President Trump!!!

  • Looks like Mueller caught another witch in the witch hunt for the 3rd time,Dumpty's man Manafort caught witness tampering while under house arrest.Probably going to jail and wait on Dumpty.Maybe Dumpty can pardon them both from jail,since he and his lawyers thinks he is above the law,even if he kills someone as Giuliani said.Is he going to pardon everyone indicted even the Russians?

    So now the story is he really did dictate the letter that his son supposedly wrote.Lies and more lies every day.

    -- Posted by lets be real on Mon, Jun 4, 2018, at 10:21 PM
  • Trump isn't going to jail. He is too busy ending the Korean war, putting America back on top of the world stage, and leading the free world.

  • LBR......

    Can you answer the very simple question I asked above????

    -- Posted by cmcclanahan on Tue, Jun 5, 2018, at 4:46 PM
  • Trump disarms the BLM thugs and perpetual whiners in professional sports, challenging them to name people worthy of a pardon if they think the judicial system is racist.

    No doubt, this will not be sufficient, as these types of people only want to complain about their ready made excuse in life.

    -- Posted by quietmike on Fri, Jun 8, 2018, at 12:37 PM
  • BLM had no need to be disarmed because they have not killed anyone.Dumpty is only pardoning people after being asked by famous people. He is to ignorant to know that Muhammad Ali case was overturned by the Supreme Court.If he goes through the right process he would see people that need pardoning and not have to ask.Dumpty does a good job of trashing his own judicial system.If he tries to pardon everyone in the Mueller case this be the end of his presidency.

    Dumpty is the one who knocked America off the top and leader world status.And to make matters even worse,asking to admit Russia back into the G7 Summit.Still kissing Putins a** and insulting our allies.When he finishes it will be the G6 Summit minus America.

  • LBR.....answer please?

    -- Posted by cmcclanahan on Fri, Jun 8, 2018, at 4:22 PM
  • LBR,

    Sorry, I forgot everything had to be dumbed down for you.

    Let's look at the definition of disarmed:

    dis·arm/disˈärm/

    verb

    1. take a weapon or weapons away from (a person, force, or country).

    2. allay the hostility or suspicions of.

    Most semi-intelligent people would realize the post above didn't mean Trump was taking guns away from BLM members.

    As far as BLM thugs not killing anyone, the families of some cops in Dallas would disagree.

    -- Posted by quietmike on Fri, Jun 8, 2018, at 5:39 PM
  • Quite where is your proof of BLM involved in Dallas cop killing?

    Mcclanahan I was not in the military and never said I was.Why do you keep asking?

    You should be more worried about an American president not knowing why Russia is not part of the G7 and letting the world see him ask to let them back in,after them hacking our election.Putin loves seeing Trump trash our allies and cling to dictators such as him.It is going to put us right where he wants us,not America first but America alone.

    Dumpty said porn stars have no credibiity,does that include Melania who was a porn model? And if they have no credibility what does it say about him who slept with them even without protection.Dumpty and Jiuliani cheated on all 6 wives between them and Jiuliani's fist wife was his cousin,so much for credibility.Hypocrites

  • "The suspect said he was upset about Black Lives Matter. He said he was upset about the recent police shootings. The suspect said he was upset at white people. The suspect stated he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers."

    A quote that is found on nearly every story you can find on the Dallas shooting.

    Since BLM doesn't give out membership cards, no doubt you'll continue to claim he wasn't a member, even though the language is identical.

    Several other police assassinations were perpetrated by thugs spouting the BLM rhetoric.

    https://nypost.com/2017/07/06/politically-fueled-cop-hatred-has-taken-another-in...

    Just because some welfare bum robbed a store, then attacked a cop and got shot for being an idiot, the "hands up don't shoot" lie was started so animals could have an excuse to go on a looting spree.

  • LBR......you display, pseudo I guess, knowledge of Trump and others who you call draft dodgers. Being so judgemental of those who didn't serve in the military, I thought surely you were a veteran as less than 1% of us are.

    -- Posted by cmcclanahan on Sat, Jun 9, 2018, at 9:50 AM
  • Mcclanahan I was not drafted and if I was I would have done my duty,not hide behind a rich daddy and a lying doctor after 5 deferments.When you refuse to serve your country that makes you a DRAFT DODGER.I know if Obama had done this you would call him one.

    Quite I still need your proof and not something from a right wing opinion page.There are plenty of white people in BLM movement,if you say he was a member why no harm to them.And if you think as you call them"animals" stealing a pack of cigars needs deadly force while armed white mass killers are captured and took to a hospital is right,then heaven help you.

    Do you Dumpty sheep agree with what he said while on an international trip about America? He said "something happened" to remove Russia from the G7 but he either don't know or don't care.He blames Obama for Putin invading Crimea instead of Putin.And all the while his campaign manager Manafort was working with Putin behind the scene by encouraging protest against American military in Ukraine.Another reason that traitor is going away for a long time if he doesn't start singing.Why would an American president praise dictators who kill their own people and slam our allies.

    Leave it to the blithering idiot to claim a source of a right wing opinion page, when no source was given.

    You incredible moron, try Google and see if that quoted post is not part of nearly every story (as I indicated the first time).

    And if you think as you call them"animals" stealing a pack of cigars needs deadly force while armed white mass killers are captured and took to a hospital is right,then heaven help you.

    More evidence of less than fully functional cerebral activity.

    Try having someone else read it to you, preferably someone who is not a professional victim.

    The moron was shot because he attacked the cop and went for his gun.

    Darwinism at work.

  • Unreal, you can call Trump a draft dodger all you want. Fact is, he was called to serve his country and he is doing a hell of a job being your President. He is doing what is needed for America. And as a happy side effect, he has guaranteed us 6.5 more years of unlimited liberal tears. 😂

  • LBR, using your criteria for a draft dodger, how do you see Mr. Clinton? I realize he is no longer President nor running but neither is Mr. Obama so......

    Regarding the way police respond to black vs white, I agree, there is a difference but I would also suggest there is a difference in attitude and response between white vs black to the police.

    -- Posted by stevemills on Sun, Jun 10, 2018, at 4:54 PM
  • ^^^^Bingo Steve.

    When you've convinced yourself you're a victim, everyone looks like an oppressor.

    -- Posted by quietmike on Mon, Jun 11, 2018, at 5:37 AM
  • I am sure Clinton got preferential treatment also but Obama was 12 years old when the draft ended.

    History and present day happenings tells us that whites have no reason to fear the police.Everyday we see whites yelling at police,fleeing in police cars,shooting at police and armedwhite mass killers captured without deadly force.They are all took to a hospital or Burger King such as Dylan Roof.UNARMED minorities even as young as 10 year olds are handcuffed slammed to the ground and some are shot dead for minor traffic stops even after cooperating with the cops.So yes minorities have good reason to run from police.Police should be taught to desclate not hype the situation.Their attitude matters also.There is no excuse for shooting anyone lying on the ground handcuffed.If a police is that afraid they are in the wrong profession.

    -- Posted by lets be real on Mon, Jun 11, 2018, at 12:58 PM
  • What LBR and other professional victims don't realize is the underlying crime is irrelevant.

    If a cop tells you to put your hands up, stop, or that you're under arrest, that's ALL that matters right then. You don't argue you're innocence on the side of the road.

    The mass killers LBR is upset about did this, and were arrested peacefully.

    Mike Brown, Tamir Rice, and others didn't, and paid the price.

    But victims always interpret everything as someone "dissing" them, and act out accordingly.

    -- Posted by quietmike on Mon, Jun 11, 2018, at 1:12 PM
  • Quite do you realize Tamir Rice was 12 years old child aand the cops got out of the car shooting,no questions asked? He was shot before they could even say hands up.The man that called the police knowing he had a toy gun should have been arrested.The white family that attacked the police in a walmart parking lot did not even get tased.Having your hands up makes no difference,some have got killed with hands up and reaching into the glove compartment after being told.How come it is only minorities as you said "paid the price".A white city council woman's kids were stopped by police,they called her,she came to the scene and used curse words to the police and they did nothing.You are telling me that every white killer surrendered peacefully. The police knowing they were armed should approach them they way they do minorities,guns drawn,beat them first,then ask no questions and go straight to jail.Quite I dare you to darken your skin and see what happens when the police pull you over.Why do you think police turn off their cameras and tell people it is illegal to video?

    -- Posted by lets be real on Mon, Jun 11, 2018, at 3:24 PM
  • LBR,

    You're inner victim is speaking, and making no sense whatsoever.

    I know it's a waste of time to reply to you for two reasons.

    First, you enjoy being a whiny victim, so no amount of factual data will convince you of anything.

    Second, you don't have the mental faculties to process information, as evidenced by your asking of questions that have already been answered.

    But for the sake of others who might be reading...

    Tamir Rice had a toy gun in his waistband. As police approached he reached for it with his right hand as he pulled up his shirt with his left hand.

    https://www.cnn.com/videos/justice/2015/12/28/tamir-rice-shooting-grand-jury-saw...

    The cops didn't know it was a toy gun, and even if they were told it was, they would be fools to risk their lives on unverified information.

    A far as it being only black people shot by police, LBR needs to venture out past her circle of other professional victims.

    Dylan Noble, a white teenager, was shot and killed by police after reaching behind his back after reports that he was armed... almost identical to the Tamir Rice situation.

    http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-fresno-police-shooting-video-2016071...

    It is very telling that complaints of police shootings have dropped dramatically lately.

    One is because of police body cams have caught numerous people claiming police abuse have been shown to be lying.

    Second, we no longer have a professional victim president, who had an absentee father and a mom who pawned him off on his grandparents so she could get busy with her newest man, stirring up racial tensions.

    -- Posted by quietmike on Tue, Jun 12, 2018, at 12:35 AM
  • Quite now we have the son of a racist who belong to the KKK and taught his son to hate minorities.You can't unite people by calling hate groups "good people".You fail to mention body cams showing people abused by police before turning them off.A 12 year old does not react as an adult.What about ones killed while running away from them causing no threat and shot in the back.So anyone out there that happens to see police brutality keep video going even if the tell you it is illegal,because it is not.If Dumpty is so pro police ,why does he constantly bash the top cops in America,the FBI.

    -- Posted by lets be real on Wed, Jun 13, 2018, at 3:30 PM
  • LBR...Interesting your quote "You can't unite people by calling hate groups "good people."" Yet you feel you can cure discrimination by using discrimination. (Think Affirmative Action) By the way, thanks for staying on the topic of this blog.

    -- Posted by cmcclanahan on Wed, Jun 13, 2018, at 6:56 PM
  • Getting back to the topic of this blog since Cmclanahan thinks it is his.Dumpty's statement "I trust Kim Jong UN","he has done some bad things but a lot of other people have done bad things".We can breath a sigh of relief now because Kim said he would work toward denuclearization,we got nothing.How many years have they said this same thing.Dumpty is a fool if he thinks he has saved the world.Kim got what he wanted while Dumpty kissed his a***.I see Dumpty hotels in NK in the future.Dumpty said Kim loves his people and is smart.Well he starves his people while stuffing his fat self,has over 120,000 political prisoners and murders his own people even his half brother for disagreeing with him.Dumpty admires this because this is his plan for America.

    Seems like he is more worried about his lawyer Cohen flipping and I don't know why this would worry an innocent person.

    -- Posted by lets be real on Wed, Jun 13, 2018, at 7:53 PM
  • LBR,

    As shocking as it is, I'm constantly amazed by your stupidity.

    Dems are the ones who love killing babies. Dems are the ones who put Americans in camps on US soil.

    But dems tell you that you are a victim and it's not your fault, so that's all you need to hear.
