Even when Trump got elected using an enemy power ( and yes I am very convinced of that) , Democrats did not call it a coup but rather stuck to their democratic norms.


So even when they came up with a pet theory which had absolutely no factual evidence to suggest or prove any aspect of it, Democrats restrained themselves from seizing military control and organizing a White House coup? How magnanimous!


You did not get my point. Democrats could have call Trump's victory as a coup, as it was due to Russian meddling

Since ONLY the "RICH" get a tax break according to the narrative of the Dems with the new tax plan, data shows that there are 143 MILLION in the 1% income ranges in the country.


That is called cherry picking. You have put the 1 million tax break and $100 for 8 years in the same bucket. I hope you do your finances the same way.

Trump just gave himself billions in tax cuts. At least the mayor is honest and forthright.

Too bad Michale Wolff is a blatant liar!


Not sure that the Alt right can complain about lying after spreading weird "unverified" stories such as

* Obama is born in Kenya
* Pizzagate
* Obama tapped Trump
* and millions voted illegally

"My credibility is being questioned by a man who has less credibility than, perhaps, anyone who has ever walked on earth at this point," Wolff said.


You beat me to it. So far Trump has 1949 misleading claims. New abyss reached in world diplomacy and America's credibility reaches a new low.

While I agree that Wolf's book is not pure journalism like NYT, WaPo, NPR, CNN or PBS or even some FOX commentators , which verify there stories through multiple sources , the fact is that the right wing media just blasts unsubstantiated comments. My famous ones

1. Pizzagate
2. Obama is tapping my phones
3. 4 million illegal voters
4. Russia did not influence the elections
5. Largest crowd ever to come to the inauguration

So, how does anyone judge what's true and what's a lie in the book?. Did some of the people interviewed actually troll him with fake stories? You have to assume all of the book is fake and a lie, since this guy has a bad history from the past.


Same way that we progressives have been sieving Trump lies, 1947 so far

So far no one has denied saying things that they said, that has been attributed in the book. Once again I am not defending the book, it is not written by MSM who vet their news but or a left leaning author but even if 50% of things written are true then we have a "fake and a stupid guy" in the white house.

Sure, but expecting even a shred of evidence at this point is a pure fantasy.


Question for the alt right. Let us say a married women is murdered . The police happen to know the murderer who has since absconded.

1. Now the husband is a loose character guy
2. Husband benefited a lot from the murder
3. Husband and the murderer had a lot of contacts and the husband lied about the contacts.

Would you expect the police to investigate the murder and expect the husband to be the prime suspect or not.

For the rest, I am assuming that you can join the dots.

Snide comment aside, what are you going to do when China sides with Democrats and gets them elected. At that point, you would have to be China's bitch instead of a Russian bitch now. The path you are promoting, you will end up as a bitch regardless.

Absolute crap. There are plenty of US tech guys. There aren't plenty of US tech guys willing to work longs hour cheaply.


You do know that all these H1-B Tech guys get paid "standard wages" , mostly above $100K and some as much as $200K. Granted that sometimes they are are taken advantage of but still they are being paid handsomely.

So you can either look at the facts or blow your horn with slogans .

Of course all Americans will get bonuses.
$1,500,000,000,000/ ~326,000,000 'peoples' = $4601-$1000bonus=$3601.
$1,500,000,000,000/~126,000,000 employed =$11,905-$1000 bonus=$10,905
Who gets the rest of the money?
Bet it won't be Republican farmers,coal miners,rust belters,fry station chefs,Evangelicals,Racist/Nazis & dumbasses.
How much will taxes increase in the next ten years to repay $4601 or $11,905 +interest?
If the economy improves,stagnates,collapses,the debt has to be repaid or someone's screwed.
Math doesn't have a pretzel logic political ideology. Are you also listening,Democrats?

Republicans will FUATT: Fuck Us All To Tears!


Most of the Republicans are too dumb to understand that. This is more like a steroid shot and once they get off the sugar high it will be a deep recession.

We ( Progressives) all support merit based system. The only question is, are you ( Right wing) guys ready for Asian influx. Asians are better ( not saying smarter) with college degrees and finding a stable job and are ready to work very hard for what they perceive as a bright western future .

The US market did better because

1. The burden of taxes shifted from companies to debt
2. The world economy is doing better
3. Some regulation removed ( such as oil explorations etc)
4. The previous president left a robust economy

I do not see any of the above sustainable, such as education, our global influence ( receding), investment in technology or creating a good working environment ( such as not allowing H1-Bs)

The reason that merit-based systems are politically unpopular with liberals is that they would result in more immigrants who compete with liberals for jobs.

Liberals said we would shitting green energy by now. There's no shitting green energy


Europe is in the forefront of shitting Green Power

While, almost 100 per cent of Iceland's electricity comes from renewable sources, due to its investment in hydropower and geothermal energy production.Oct 26, 2016

Roughly 27 percent of Germany's electricity is from renewables; the goal is at least 80 percent by 2050. On July 25, 2015, it was very windy in the north and sunny in the south. For a few hours renewables yielded about three-quarters of Germany's electricity.

Wikipedia tells me that wind power produces the equivalent of 42.1% of Denmark's electricity consumption.
Denmark still has its traditional power plants and is connected by grid to other nations where they purchase additional power when needed.
