Nany pelosi cancels Trumps state of the union address.
Trump cancels her plane plane flights
Dems BTFO yet again, when they want to play dirty Trump knows how to hand it to them

US President Donald Trump has postponed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's upcoming trip to Brussels, Afghanistan and Egypt, citing the government shutdown.

"I am sure you would agree that postponing this public relations event is totally appropriate," Mr Trump said in a letter.

Mrs Pelosi urged Mr Trump on Wednesday to postpone his State of the Union address, citing the political deadlock.

Mr Trump's move came on the 27th day of a partial US government shutdown.

The Republican president wants $5.7bn (£4.4bn) of congressional funding to build a wall on the US-Mexico border, but Democrats have refused.

>weaken international relations by canceling at the last minute
>lower troop morale, show them you don't care about them by stopping a government representative seeing them and listening to their concerns
If you look anything beyond the /pol/ppet propaganda of this thread. All signs point to this being a desperation and spiteful move by Trump.
Consider the following.

>Trump cancelled the trip at the last possible moment. The congressional delegation was already on the bus heading to Joint Base Andrews.
>Trump violated national secrecy rules by revealing the trip. This is yet another unprecedented act by Trump since these trips are closely guarded secrets.
>Trump called Pelosi and Democratic congressmen meeting with ground commanders and ground forces in Afghanistan, a 'publicity stunt', something that those serving would disagree. Also it shows Trump's mind set that he doesn't care about how the Trump's feel and only sees them as props for whatever he's doing. (See his trip to Iraq that he was shamed into because he was so scared of being attacked.)
>The idea that this is about cost or security doesn't hold water because Trump cabinet officials are still heading to the World Economic Forum in Davos (Which Trump skipped out of already) If security is such an issue, Trump would have his envoy to the summit scaled back or cancelled.
>Also, while this is speculation and would give Trump more credit than he deserves. There was also the layover in Brussels where Pelosi would have met with NATO and joint command. Given more and more evidence of Trump being an agent of Putin coming out, cancelling the trip also has the extra benefit of keeping democrats from interacting with NATO.

tl;dr, Trump cancelled the trip out of spite and doesn't care if he jeopardizes national security. Which again shows how he has no issue abusing power to get even. And that's what really makes him invoking a national security a a threat, because you know he can and will use their powers to get revenge on people he thinks have wronged him.
Because nothing says supporting the troops than canceling a visit because you aren't getting the funding you want.
Hopefully troop morale drops enough for ISIS to win.
They can just Skype. They probably will.

Oh wow, visiting the troops? I bet their morale is collapsing and they're breaking down as we speak.

Politics is currently about humiliating the other side's elected representatives - now you're getting back what you've been giving out the past 3 years, and what's this.. I can't seem to find a single fuck to give. Burns doesn't it?

Bad optics for Nancy running off to Europe for a 9 day vacations. That would be 9 days of not trying to reopen the government for the 800,000 workers.
Should be thankful Trump stopped her.
Dems are in Puerto rico and hiding on a bus
To Afghanistan and Egypt?
The Speaker is in Washington. We know this because Trumo.just canceled her delegation to visit the troops.

President Donald Trump's former fixer and personal attorney Michael Cohen paid a technology expert to rig online polls in Trump's favor, according to The Wall Street Journal.

John Gauger, the owner of Red Finch Solutions and chief information officer at Liberty University, said Cohen offered him $50,000 to manipulate two news sites' polls, the Journal reported Thursday, citing a government document and a person familiar with the matter.

Gauger said Cohen handed him a Walmart bag loaded with about $12,000 in cash during a 2015 meeting at Cohen's Trump Organization office. Cohen also threw in a boxing glove he said was once worn by a Brazilian mixed-martial arts fighter.But he never paid Gauger the remainder of the promised $50,000, the Journal said.

Cohen did not deny the report in a tweet Thursday morning, saying, "What I did was at the direction of and for the sole benefit of" Trump.

"I truly regret my blind loyalty to a man who doesn't deserve it," wrote the man who once said he would "take a bullet" for the president.

Gauger did not appear to have much success at moving the needle in the polls he was paid to manipulate. In January 2014, Cohen asked Gauger to sway a CNBC online poll on the top American business leaders with a program that could vote for Trump repeatedly, the Journal report said. But Trump did not break into the top 100.

In February 2015, Cohen asked Gauger to boost Trump in a Drudge Report poll on potential 2016 Republican presidential candidates, according to Gauger. Trump ended up coming in fifth with 5 percent of the vote.

Cohen also asked Gauger to create a Twitter account with the handle @WomenForCohen that would be run by a female friend of Gauger's to portray Cohen as a "sex symbol" and hype his statements in favor of Trump's presidential campaign, the Journal reported.

Yes, something that we can try before we immediately say it's bad.

yes. please try something new!

Sure, but giving money to Erik Prince isn't new, so lets not try it.

There was a video of the powerful deadly strike of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the Donbas.

The Armed Forces of Ukraine dealt a powerful blow to the militants: according to preliminary data, five invaders were killed.

The corresponding video was published by people's deputy Dmitry Tymchuk on his Facebook page.

“Violation of the Minsk agreements has a negative effect on the karma of the occupiers in the Donbas,” wrote Tymchuk.

"The aggressor's transport was destroyed with oncoming fire. According to preliminary data, 5 occupants were destroyed, 3 more were wounded," the people's deputy said.

Democratic Socialist New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio Cortez criticized a reporter for not describing Republican Congressman Steve King as “racist.”

In a tweet Friday, David M. Drucker, a senior political correspondent for DC Examiner, tweeted that Republican Congressman Steve King of Iowa and House minority whip Steve Scalise had spoken, following remarks in which King defended white nationalism.

King “'initiated' a convo today w/ @SteveScalise to inform them he would speak on floor to address his racially-tinged remarks,” tweeted Drucker, who says on his profile he is also a CNN political analyst and Vanity Fair contributor.

Hundreds of Twitter users criticised the reporter for the use of the phrase “racially tinged,” saying he should have used the word “racist” instead.

Among them was Ocasio Cortez.

"You spelled “racist” wrong,” she tweeted in response to Drucker.

"At this point those who use the terms “racially tinged” or “racially charged” to describe white supremacy should be prepared to explain why they chose to employ those terms instead of “racist”/“racism.” If the answer is their own discomfort, they’re protecting the wrong people," she continued.

Drucker thanked Ocasio Cortez for her comment, responding,"appreciate the edit."

it's literally trump's fault because he said as much in his address.

haven't you been paying attention? He "Owns'" this shutdown, it's on him
Juuuuust checking :^)

President Trump's personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, said Wednesday that he "never said there was no collusion" between the Trump campaign and Russia, claiming only that Trump himself was not involved in collusion.

“I never said there was no collusion between the campaign. Or between people in the campaign," Giuliani said on CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time," after host Chris Cuomo said it was false to suggest there was no collusion between Trump's presidential campaign and the Kremlin.

Giuliani added that he has only said Trump, rather than his campaign, did not collude with the Russians.

"There is not a single bit of evidence the president of the United States committed the only crime you could commit here, conspiring with the Russians to hack the [Democratic National Committee]," Giuliani said.

>Heck, if you want further proof of how much of a firestarter she is look at how the centrist old democrats and caucusing independents like Lieberman are treating her. They keep telling her 'atop tweeting and start legislating' like having a social media presence is a bad thing.
Look, I agree with a lot of the things she claims to support, but let's be real here. Being a "firestarter" isn't necessarily a badge of honor. I can think of someone else who steals headlines left and right that pissed off their party's old guard and gets told to stay off social media and do their job. I don't think you would consider that person a firestarter in any good sense though.

Democrats once again in their never-ending attempts to Virtue signal look even dumber every time they open their mouths this time accusing a black man of white privilege before knowing the color of his skin -- simply because he has a nice job

CNN legal analyst and civil rights lawyer Areva Martin accused Fox News contributor David Webb, who is a black man, of benefiting from “white privilege.”

The gaffe occurred on Webb’s Sirius XM Radio show Tuesday night during a discussion on race and job qualifications.

“I’ve chosen to cross different parts of the media world, done the work so that I’m qualified to be in each one,” Webb, also host of Fox Nation, told Martin. “I never considered my color the issue; I considered my qualifications the issue.”
Martin, who also hosts CBS’ “Face of Truth,” suggested perhaps his race and gender played a role in his perspective.

“Well David, that’s a whole other long conversation about white privilege, the things that you have the privilege of doing, that people of color don’t have the privilege of,” she said to him.

When Webb asked how he benefits, Martin told him “it’s by virtue of being a white male that you have white privilege.”

“Areva, I have to break it to you, but you’ should’ve been better prepared,” he responded. “I’m black.”

We have about a month until either Trump is finished or it's literally nothing

WASHINGTON — Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who had been overseeing the special counsel investigation, plans to step down after Robert Mueller finishes his work, according to administration officials familiar with his thinking.

A source close to Rosenstein said he intends to stay on until Mueller's investigative and prosecutorial work is done. The source said that would mean Rosenstein would remain until early March. Several legal sources have said they expect the Mueller team to conclude its work by mid-to-late February, although they said that timeline could change based on unforeseen investigative developments.

It is if he wasn't actually involved. Hence why you need to *cough* producephysicalevidenceshowingthis *cough*

>Correct! Let us count off the names. Manafort, Stone, Papadopoulos, Gate
They've all been doing the same thing, dipping into the same fund, had documented proof showing they were all working with each other in a conspiratorial capacity that supports RICO, and have all been charged with crimes directly related to each other?

Oh wait, no, they have they all been strung up on separate threads that are made to look like they're from the same ball of yarn to feign credibility for the continuation of the probe? Right

>There's plenty of proof!
>Just not any physical proof that proves collusion as originally charged, let alone Trump's involvement in anything!
There's no reason for them to end the investigation. It's too valuable to e Democrats. Expect it to last all the way to 2020.

It's pretty much guaranteed at this point that there's nothing on Trump himself, which is why the investigation keeps getting extended.
Or they keep finding more financial crimes in the execution of the investigation. Clearly at a minimum Trump is surrounded by lots of people of questionable morals. Not that I have much faith that doesn't hold true for most wealthy and politicians. As long as bad people are getting held to account keep it rolling.
3 more weeks then?
yeah right

He just protected his family. The provocation from the side of the youngsters is clearly visible on the video.

Clearly justifiable. If a group of kids ganged up on me I'd swing too.

In yet another crushing defeat for Trump's fascist sycophants, the GoFundMe campaign that aimed to raise $1 billion for the border wall is shutting down, and the $20 million raised will be refunded to donors.

GoFundMe spokesman Bobby Whithorne told INSIDER that when the campaign was started, founder Brian Kolfage promised donors that all donations would be used to pay for a border wall between the US and Mexico if the $1 billion goal was met.

"However, that did not happen," Whithorne said. "This means all donors will receive a refund."

Kolfage, a US veteran and Trump supporter, updated the campaign's GoFundMe page on Friday announcing the refunds. He also introduced a new 501(c)(4) non-profit Florida Corporation named "We Build the Wall, Inc.," where donors can redirect their refunds to if they still wish for their money to be used, in one way or another, to build a wall.

In his update, Kolfage said that upon seeing the fundraiser's "success," he reached out to several experts in "politics, national security, construction, and finance" and created a team that "has spent countless hours over the holidays reviewing all issues pertaining to the construction of a southern border wall."

"Unanimously," Kolfage wrote, "we have all come to the conclusion that the federal government won't be able to accept our donations anytime soon."

This is why, he wrote, his new non-profit will now accept any donations previously made to the GoFundMe.

Among the group of "experts" listed on the GoFundMe page are Erik Prince, an American businessman known as the founder of the security firm Blackwater (he is also Betsy DeVos' brother), Sheriff David Clarke, the former Milwaukee County sheriff known for his controversial views on immigration, and frequent Trump campaigner Steve Ronnebeck.

>WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump’s nominee for U.S. attorney general, William Barr, told lawmakers on Tuesday he would protect a federal probe into Russian election meddling from political pressure, stressing he would bring independence to the job and not shy away from breaking ranks with the administration.

>“I will not be bullied into doing anything that I think is wrong - by anybody, whether it be editorial boards or Congress or the president. I’m going to do what I think is right,” Barr said at his confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

>Barr is expected to win confirmation in the Republican-controlled Senate to serve as the nation’s top law enforcement officer, which would put him in charge of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election and any possible collusion between Moscow and Trump’s campaign.

>“On my watch, Bob will be allowed to complete his work,” Barr said.

>Democrats worry that Trump’s administration may try to undercut the investigation, which has been a frequent target of the president and his allies.

>Barr, who was attorney general under Republican President George H.W. Bush in the 1990s, said his primary loyalty would be to the rule of law, not Trump. He said he did not seek out the job and was reluctant to accept when Trump offered it to him.

>Trump frequently criticizes the Mueller probe as a “witch hunt” and has denied any collusion with Russia or obstruction of justice. Russia has denied U.S. intelligence agencies’ findings that it interfered in the 2016 election.

Even Kavanaugh voted on the side of the pro-choicers in a recent decision so he's more of a wild card than people seem to think. Sure he hates the Clintons and loves beer but if he wants to keep that Supreme Court position he'd be smart to appear bipartisan. Otherwise when Trump's out people will start thinking "Should the appointments of an illegitimate president really be left in place?"
And you would have to be apologetically stupid to think that the conflict would end with a pro-Trump ruling at that stage
Gorsuch is bought and sold by the Corporations and he's just as corrupt as Kavenaugh.

The only who might turn is what said >>341385
about Roberts since he's a politician first and if the Supreme Court voted along party lines to protect Trump, their credibility as an independent institution is over an the Dems would do everything to either destroy or pack the courts after that. It's the reason why Roberts voted to protect Obamacare. He has no problem handing over this country to the religious right and his corporate masters, but he's smart enough to know what lines not to cross.

He's going to scuttle Roe v Wade when that comes up, so it doesn't mean two shits he did one ruling.
Nobody is going to touch Roe v. Wade.
Unfortunately the guy also repeated the "it takes two to tango" line so I guess he's compromised.


>The withdrawal of US troops from northeastern Syria would take place in a manner that "absolutely assured" the security of Israel and other US allies in the Middle East, a top adviser to President Donald Trump has said.

>John Bolton made the pledge on Sunday, hours after laying out the conditions for the US troop pullout from Syria on the defeat of the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS), as well as assurances from Turkey over the safety of Kurdish fighters allied with the United States.

>Speaking to reporters leading up to talks with Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Bolton said the pullout would be done in a way that guaranteed the ISIL "is defeated and is not able to revive itself and become a threat again".

>And it would be carried out in such a way as to "make sure that the defence of Israel and our other friends in the region is absolutely assured, and to take care of those who have fought with us against ISIS and other terrorist groups," he said.

>The pullout announced on December 19 was initially expected to be completed within weeks, but the timetable has slowed as the president acceded to requests from aides, allies and members of US Congress for a more orderly withdrawal.

I agree that we need to ensure that our allies are going to be protected but Bolton is a neocon lunatic so I'm pretty sure he also has his own reasons for making that statement.
Leave it to Trump, the puppet of the Russians and Turks, to make Bolton's policy decisions on troops in the middle east look rational.

Why are the Republicans so incompetently evil?
Who cares what the anti-anime spammer has to say?
Is there something they're trying to hide by spamming so much pro-Trump propaganda?
