What a joke

Recommended Posts

Oh dear Leo...

 

In no particular order care to comment on how Trump fucked up the Eastern Airlines Bos/Was shuttle when he bought it ?

 

Wanted to take a bus everyone liked and turn it into bloody bizjets. Went broke in no time and THEN he defaulted on the debt used to buy it.

 

Typical Trump.

 

Obama did not do too badly but he had a mess to begin with.

 

If you would like Gahdaffi back you really are demented. I visited Libya a couple of times in his rein - utter police state. Before I passed through I thought he was ok, he wasn't.Tortured and killed vast numbers of people, stole like crazy from the coffers. The U.S. did not like him much, hard to after Pan Am 103 and yes I was as I've mentioned here before on that flight into London, thankfully not out but a little kid I was joking with on my short hop was. He kicked the U.S. out of course, mostly Whellus airbase but the locals were quite happy with their presence.

 

Since he was killed, by his own people, running like a dog and hiding in a ditch the country has certainly gone south, but so has most every participant in the Arab Spring, harsh evolution in action. The U'S can hardly be blamed for the Arab temperament across most of the region, or the Persian one for that matter.

 

Foreign policy ineptitude does not lead to instability overnight but his slap-dash personal agrandising stupidities are making the world a much less safe place than it was on Obama's watch.

 

He pals up to your buddy (not) Putin, who plays him like a fiddle, He claims progress with Kim when there is none, the last meeting was a total bust, the one before he was also played and NK went on developing its nuclear weaponry arsenal.

 

The re-merging possibility of IRBMs along the European/Russian border through his ineptitude at managing long existent treaties that Putin wanted changed and he did not fight it has undone a process that goes back to when Kennedy pulled the Jupiters out of Turkey.

 

It is very likely he will yet intervene in Venezuela putting the lie to your peaceful prez bit. Something has to be done there but the South American nations should deal with it not the U.S.

 

His ludicrous sticking to his pathetic wall because if it is not built he will lose face on election promises has thus far led to a chunk of America not getting paid for a time and possibly compromised national security now he wants to go Executive Orders and call an emergency which is entirely not the point of that provision in the constitution.

 

He's riding an economy that was on the way up anyway and claiming he caused it to improve - bullshit.

 

He sticks his nose in where it is not needed, courtesy of his tv addiction and Twitter - never so aptly named since this twit made so much use of it. His comments on Boeing 737Max' were not needed, but he just could not shut up, likewise Theresa May does not need his help to dig herself a bigger hole but he just HAD to claim he had offered to help on Brexit, there are many other examples.

 

I most certainly did not vote for the idiotic NBN created by no nothings. Nor did I vote for the privatisation of Telecom who left alone would have us all on a sensible broadband network by now.

 

I assume you did vote for one based on copper oxide and un-tested wireless technologies being rolled out regardless.

 

It's perfectly possible for me to go on but no, I take little to no notice of the "fifth column." My information comes primarily from far more impartial sources. Trump on the other hand seems to prefer it over his advisers.

 

Cheers

Well to be fair, a piss-easy way to give Wall St a boost is to eviscerate regulators like the EPA and CFPB...

Even better to arrange for many large companies to buy back their stocks thereby driving the share prices through the roof.

When you have a CiC who apparently does not believe in global warming the EPA is going to suffer...

Obama’s vacating of Iraq led to ISIS’s takeover. Obama boosted the Brotherhood leading to the Sinai mess.

 

Obama was played by Putin over Iran and then Iran played Kerry, got $150b to murder more Syrians and started a war in Yemen.

And yet Putin hasn’t got one thing out of Trump. But did out of Obama.

$100 says Trump won’t put troops on the ground in Venezuela?

 

You up for it?

He picked up an economy riding almost flat for several quarters.

 

Furthermore, job creation has been at the low end of the market. Minority employment is higher than it has ever been and real wage growth for the first time in a generation, below middle management levels.

I don't gamble, but he already has troops in a neighbouring country. Do you include air activity ? If you do then too late, U.S. is already flying recon over Venezuela with offshore fighter escort ready to move in and protect. One step from Gulf of Sidra or el Dorado Canyon.

 

Virgin et all are new brands, Eastern was a well -liked, established service and he fucked it up. First rule of business, fuck with what is working at your peril.

 

Negotiations with your homeland are always a bit of give and take but if you think Putin has gotten nothing out of Trump then you do not understand the value of nuclear treaties and nuclear arms restrictions. Re-admitting the possibility of deploying IRBMs is damned dangerous. Meanwhile Putin is messing with hypersonic delivery systems which the U.S can have if it wants, tested them years ago and Russia complained about it. In the end they are an improved FOB but with improved mid-course control for refining or changing delivery point (s). Putin is also messing with tsunami torpedoes for which there is no treaty to cover.

 

Leaving Iraq was pure pragmatism on Obama's part, achieving nothing, been there too long, Americans getting killed for no advantage. Again with any issues in the Arab states they need to sort it out themselves. I agreed with Trump pulling out of Syria and the local forces have all but destroyed ISIS QED.

 

I have no interest in going to Libya, I never did much but it's same shit different assholes, but more visible than it was under Qaddafi.

 

Cheers

With the fluoride filtered out, no doubt

Straight from the tap.

Just don't indulge in sugar water, fucked over fruit squashings or corrupted cow juice, it's not really milk anymore.

Since there seems to be a fascination with what I consume, I am doing an intermittent fasting regimen that is slowly getting more stringent over time.

At the moment I don't eat anything before 1 pm I do have sugarless black coffee and tapwater.

Am aiming to achieve an 18 hour fast and a 6 hour feed window.

Most of the time lunch is four free range eggs cooked in butter soft yolks nothing else just the eggs till dinner.

Not going to go full Paeleo but am cutting out more carbs and adding protein and fats over time.

economists are about as prescient as studying entrails

 

analysing events after they happen is much easier than before; as they say "past performance is no guarantee of future returns"

 

honest financial people would admit "you win some, you lose some" - that's why insider trading is such a popular sport

diet wise, i usually have a bowl od buckwheat with berries (pity the summer months are behind us in that regard, as blueberries are getting way too expensive)

 

and a short double shot freshly pulled espresso with warm full cream milk (doing milk with the wand is torturous and deafening)

 

that's around 8:30am

 

thereafter i rarely get to eat (cup of mint tea while i work, which i often don't drink) before at least 2pm, and quite often it's after 3

 

dinner is usually 8 or later

 

i was going to post this is "what did you watch lately", but given the subject matter here, this is a compelling hour and a bit of impressive good science on what's good for you, which i expect few doctors have seen

I am old about 62 so metabolism was comatose , can cause problems if old farts push it too hard, anyway I have slowly been working towards the objective for 8 months.

I have had many fuck it stuff my face with potato chips or eat all the chocolate fail days.

It's cool though fail days are permitted, as you go along they get further apart, and make you feel crappier after.

Results depend on what you see as success.

Am losing body fat am gaining muscle, something easily measureabl .... Am three holes smaller on my belt am wearing shirts I used to pop buttons on.

  Bought a mountain bike recently ,do a 14k round trip to the men's shed 3 days a week  don't set any speed records hehe.

Not recommending it folks need do what works for them.

I decided that the regenerative

benefits of the fasting were right for an oldie that needed to eat a whole lot less anyway.

Cheers twinair 🙂

Trump is in the process of doing something I utterly agree with, I'm sure Leo will as well:

 

https://www.news.com.au/world/middle-east/donald-trump-says-america-will-recognise-israels-control-of-contested-region/news-story/310a708ab232f29744e486d2432d2465

 

The Golan is essential to Israel's security, some of the bloodiest fighting in 67 and 73 went on there but as the article points out they have held it for over half a century.

 

Jerusalem is also significant of course but again Israel has held their stand there for a long time and been very fair about all race and ethnicity access, something that was not the case prior.

 

It could lead to some rumblings across the region but there is little that can be done about it in real terms, the Israelis have kicked their neighbors asses more than enough times and remain the strongest military in the region.

So the Mueller inquiry has wound up after 650 days... it cost $27m (which is relatively cheap, apparently)  but recovered $48m from tax cheats. 

 

Remains to be seen how much Barr will reveal, but if he wants to be shifty the Dems will go after the report in court...

Why would he be shifty, I heard he is a law and order kind of guy.

Trump wants all of it released, but has no say at all about what is or is not released in the Mueller report.

That aside, the real thing about the end of the Mueller Trump Hunt, is that Trumps love of declassification gets free reign.

Much to the chagrin of many who/whom will soon be brought into the light.

How're you finding the texture of it?

 

I didn't mind the flavour but found it both mushy and grainy in a not particularly pleasant way.

 

 

Also, vaguely on topic, I'm seeing conflicting coverage of the report. On the one hand it says Trump didn't collude but isn't ruling out obstruction, on the other hand, claims Trump is home free for both and it was a giant waste of time.

Have to cook them just right they give 2 times in a bracket say 6 to 8 mins, I cook them for the larger of the two exactly with a timer, a little bit of oil on the water helps (2 or so tbl spoons)  I don't rinse just drain ant serve them straight away, they don't stand well, the pulse pene and spaghetti have the best texture.

But yah they don't have that glutenous goodness of wheat noodles, for me it is about less carbs so I have adapted, for a robust and tasty noodle I love San Remo spelt spirals, yummy wheaty texture and slightly nutty spelt taste.

_____________________________

On the other subject wait for scope memo to be declassified it will be enlightening to see the astoundingly broad parameters for the inquiry.

Ignore the sound-bites it's just like election night all over again, globalist media created a false reality with dishonest narrative and fostered unreal expectations.

Just like election night complete with Rachel Maddow crying, and much wailing / gnashing of teeth, Adam Schiff and co making empty threats and promises that won't be kept.

They will move the goalposts as they segway a new set of sound-bites with which to control the narrative.

This time is different The President is not brand new, the blockade (Mueller) is lifted. Huber and Horowitz have been busy over in Utah with about 400 + investigators have been looking at the legality of many activities by the alphabet agencies (FBI DOJ ect).

Here is some gossip for free "Clowns In America" are too corrupt to be cleaned up and repaired, so will likely be disbanded .

Trump is a lying self aggrandising snake who cares very little about America, all he cares about is Trump and making Trump look good.

 

That’s pretty much every non-statesman President.

 

Trump’s just more brazen and wasn’t the establishment’s favourite so they’re not covering for him.

 

*shrug* call me strange but I prefer that.

 

The cunt is a complete wrecking ball. And you prefer this. 

Quote

 

An American president is not just the chief executive of the United States, and the office he (eventually she) holds is not just a bully pulpit to advance policy ideas. He is also a moral leader, and the office is a moral pulpit invested with meaning about the common good.

 

As George Washington’s biographer, Douglas Southall Freeman, explained, the first president believed he had been entrusted with something of immense intrinsic worth, and that his duty was to uphold it for its own sake and over the long term. He led by moral example.

 

Few of our subsequent presidents have come close to the example Washington set, but none to date has been as far from that standard as Trump.

 

In the 2016 presidential campaign, when accused of failing to pay his income taxes, Trump responded “that makes me smart”. His comment conveyed a message to millions of Americans: that paying taxes in full is not an obligation of citizenship.

 

Trump boasted about giving money to politicians so they would do whatever he wanted. “When they call, I give. And you know what, when I need something from them two years later, three years later, I call them. They are there for me.” In other words, it’s perfectly OK for business leaders to pay off politicians, regardless of the effect on our democracy.

 

Trump sent another message by refusing to reveal his tax returns during the campaign or even when he took office, or to put his businesses into a blind trust to avoid conflicts of interest, and by his overt willingness to make money off his presidency by having foreign diplomats stay at his Washington hotel, and promoting his various golf clubs.

 

These were not just ethical lapses. They directly undermined the common good by reducing the public’s trust in the office of the president.

 

A president’s most fundamental responsibility is to uphold and protect our system of government. Trump has weakened that system.

 

When, as a presidential nominee, he said a particular federal judge shouldn’t be hearing a case against him because the judge’s parents were Mexican, Trump did more than insult a member of the judiciary. He attacked the impartiality of America’s legal system.

 

When Trump threatened to “loosen” federal libel laws so he could sue news organizations that were critical of him and, later, to revoke the licenses of networks critical of him, he wasn’t just bullying the media. He was threatening the freedom and integrity of the press.

 

When, as president, he equated neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klan members with counter-protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia by blaming “both sides” for the violence, he wasn’t being neutral. He was condoning white supremacists, thereby undermining equal rights.

 

When he pardoned Joe Arpaio, the former sheriff of Maricopa county, Arizona, for a criminal contempt conviction, he wasn’t just signaling it’s OK for the police to engage in brutal violations of civil rights. He was also subverting the rule of law by impairing the judiciary’s power to force public officials to abide by court decisions.

 

When he criticized NFL players for kneeling during the national anthem, he wasn’t really asking that they demonstrate their patriotism. He was disrespecting their – and, indirectly, everyone’s – freedom of speech.

 

In all these ways, Trump undermined core values of our democracy.

 

This is the essence of Trump’s failure – not that he has chosen one set of policies over another, or has divided rather than united Americans, or even that he has behaved in childish and vindictive ways unbecoming a president.

 

It is that he has sacrificed the processes and institutions of American democracy to achieve his goals. By saying and doing whatever it takes to win, he has abused the trust we place in a president to preserve and protect the nation’s capacity for self-government.
