Do you have a better solution to get that trade deficit down? Trump is obviously failing.



What was Obama's strategy?

Oh yeah, those jobs aren't coming back.

Here is the problem for Trump. The campaign is not subject to the First Amendment, but the White House clearly is. Even if Sims did sign an NDA at the White House, the First Amendment bars the government from enforcing it, and several federal statutes protect whistleblowers, no matter what they agreed not to say at the outset of their work, unless it is classified material being protected. In the West Wing, Sims worked for the federal government, not Donald Trump personally and not the campaign.


Yeah, why can't Trump protect whistleblowers like Obama did?

So. Which was the bigger year 1995 or 1997?


Read the articles. One is the year to date (Summer 2018), the other is January 2019 as a calendar year.

Trump's America is getting Swole. Chronic Cardio Obama is making excuses about being a hard gainer.

How did I do ?


Not too good, considering Obama prosecuted more whistleblowers under the Espionage Act than every single President since it passed in 1917.

In the words of Saint Reagan of the church of the GOP - There you go again - but but but but Obama



There you go again, #OrangeManBad but ignoring that Obama was worse on many grounds, such as Whistleblowers.

Or, transparency... in the most transparent Administration ever. That went after journalists and leakers with ruthless abandon.

Kindly stay on topic - Obama is not the topic - it's the Dotard



No, the topic is Free Speech and, since YOU brought it up, Whistleblower protections.

Mentioning the past President who was indisputably the most aggressive prosecutor of Whistleblowers in US History is completely valid and on topic.

How can you tell the Good if you don't recognize Great Evil?

Worker paychecks are showing their biggest gains since the recovery began a decade ago, and are more than keeping up with inflation.

Labor Department numbers released Wednesday show that real average hourly earnings, which compare the nominal rise in wages with the cost of living, rose 1.7 percent in January on a year-over-year basis.

A month ago, the increase was 1.3 percent. A year ago, the gain was just 0.7 percent. In all, the rise in inflation-adjusted hourly pay showed the best increase since July 2016.

I'm so old I remember when Liberals were dead set against a Missile Shield in Eastern Europe in the 2000s, and advocating unilateral disarmament in the 1980s.

Who brought up whistleblowers?

Am I missing something here or is MLTC mistaken about whom brought up the subject of whistleblowers?


Missing Something. I only quoted the relevant part in my response. I will further bold it to assist your reading comprehension:

The analysis shows that on average single men owned over 1 million properties with the average value just over $300,000, and single women owned just under 1 million properties with the average value just under $300,000.


This is sexist. Women should be able to spend $500/month at Macy's and $250 on Amazon AND put away $750/month for a home.

It's not fair men are spending $150 and putting their other $600/month away for a home.

Proof of the Patriarchal Cishetero Oppression.

Dipping one in milk and then eating one does though or taking one apart to get to the white stuff in the middle and reassembling before eating also
applies since some form of manual labor is required.


Oreos are more tangible than Solyndra's defaulted loans mere months after a huge taxpayer subsidy/guarantee.

The GAO said Obama's Green Energy program sucked from the start. $2.2B down the drain.

SunnyvaleCA says
Better still, USA is a net exporter of fancy light trucks. That is what a 25% tariff can do. Since the companies are going to set up shop here in the USA, they might as well do all of their light truck manufacturing here.



Yes Sir!

Additionally, it's called the Chicken Tax because Western Europe slapped huge tarrifs on US Chicken in the 50s, before factory farming, hormones, overuse of antibiotics, etc. was a factor. The light truck tariff was a response to EuroTariffs.

The current ban on ALL US Poultry has to do with protecting inefficient Socialist Farmers from US Chicken, not with "Health", since European attempts to protect their markets began long before.

Frankly, we should similarly ban ALL French and German Wine and Beer until they re-open their markets to competition.

But yes, responding to foreign tariffs with tariffs of our own had fantastic results. Otherwise, Europeans would be exporting Light Trucks to the States, we wouldn't be making them in quantity, while totally banning our Chicken.

Vicious, racist, cowardly attack on actor #JussieSmollett can not be tolerated or ignored. Every relevant law enforcement agency must begin an intense investigation of horrifying allegations. A noose? In 2019? In Chicago? @realDonaldTrump must order an immediate federal probe.

Sure, it's never an "unerring arc of progress", but in spite of various calamities, we are still here. think the way forward is to look back at the traditional values that brought us down to the present day and admit they were actually pretty damn good, all things considered.

I call it "An Expanding Spiral". It's the eternal return, but each time it's better than the last go-around.

I'm not saying that soldiers should die. I am saying that the way to prevent corruption in politics is to keep infusing it, and even overwhelming it with new people, all the time. Overwhelm DC with people who don't know the scams and have not yet gotten the offers from the corrupt telecoms, banks, and pharma companies to sell out.


Term limits: 5 Terms in the House, 2 in the Senate. 10-12 years is enough "Public Service" for anybody. We have it for Presidents, after all.

When there's a major shift in the House, the new regime only lasts a term or two before it peters out into Business As Usual.

Another great idea is to repeal the direct election of Senators, so Senators kill any Unfunded Federal Mandates automatically, since they're beholden to their State Legislature.

They should have put in the numbers. Harvard undergrads are about 25% Jewish.

https://www.jpost.com/Diaspora/The-most-heavily-Jewish-US-college-and-other-facts-about-Jews-at-American-colleges-437701


Hmmm... This is mostly about Penn, but Harvard was peak Jew in the 1920s. This article says about 15% these days, but raises an interesting question: "Are Jews the new Old Elite WASPs?"

From Brett Kavanaugh to Covington Catholic, to Gillette razors and the #JussieSmollettHoax... it is UNDENIABLE that white, straight males have become the new target of acceptable hate and racism.

Added this week to new policies that are bearing down on asylum seekers which include tight limits on the number of people who can apply for the status each day and a heightened standard of proof to qualify was the extension of a rule that certain asylum seekers must wait in Mexico for the full duration of their legal cases, which can take years.

The ban on Anarchist and Communist immigration, and refusing entry to whole classes of people - such as Jimmuh Carter's ban on Iranians - has never been overturned by SCOTUS.

Islamism is simply another -ism the US can ban.
