Trump would protect Kim Jong Un from the CIA

Tue Jun 11, 2019 9:02 pm

Another bee-yoo-tee-ful letter from one of the world's most ruthless despots to Trump, and another admission Trump would side with the despot against the US.

"“I did receive a beautiful letter from Kim Jong Un ... I appreciated the letter,” Trump said. “I saw the information about the CIA with respect to his brother, or half-brother. And I would tell him that would not happen under my auspices.”"

Just shakes my head, nothing unexpected though and that might be most shocking.
Many happy landings, greetings from The Netherlands!

Exactly. That's the sad part is that it's nothing unexpected. And now we will have some of the same people come in and "clarify" or "but Obama/Clinton" the situation.
Interesting how every thread is spammed with "bring back paid membership, there are too many spammers"

He might just be protecting sources. There isn’t enough information to really know.

We only have 40-50 years of information and history to go on so it's a bit too soon to judge. I'm sure it's tertally legit. :rotfl:

Would any Trump supporters explain how this isn't absolutely bonkers? I just don't understand how any American could side with him on this.

You all should really charge Trump for all the time he spends in your heads! Really, ignore the BS, take your kids to the park, watch FlightAware or visit a strip club for God sakes. Life is too short to spend it worrying about Trump.

BTW, he was murdered while Trump was president, so apparently, Trump didn’t any such thing.

The absolutely worst thing he has personally done to anyone here is increase their 401k accounts?

To those that wonder why anyone could side with Trump, I give you Exhibit B (S).

I would say why any American but I’m pretty sure none of these people are American.

Just when your think Trump couldn't be any worse, yep, he gets worse. I have no respect for Donald Trump, never had, and only the most minimal legal acknowledgment he is the President. Stuff like this, his ignorance, his arrogance, his narcissism, his improper behaviors, racism, anti-Islamic, anti-immigrant attitudes, only caring about his ego and not for the country just makes me angry and frustrated he may be in office until Jan. 2020 or longer.

Oh yeah, that go over like a lead balloon.

Here's the prime Example of what the above comment really meant to push ...

1) "You people worry too much, there really is NO Russian threat, NO criminal conduct, NO corruption, NO flaunting Laws, Nothing to notice in this WH. Now go do something much much unimportant than caring about ethics, America's global prestige - leave it to the people in power...YOU can TRUST them. Trust ME, I know."

NOT

2) The Nation is beyond repair as far as unity is concerned, we need to retool our leadership to reflect US and get things done, the current state of American political landscape is at it's most ripe for corruption to run completely amok and steal everything not nailed down....from the American public.

No, my point is, don’t take Trump seriously or literally. He’s a buffoon, but so have other presidents been likewise. The Republic will survive. Spending your life worrying about pols is a serious waste.

All but one state’s legislature (Minnesota being the exception) is held exclusively by one party of the other. We are intensely divided, that’s a fact. The Federal government has swung back and forth between both parties since the fall of communism, that’s a demonstration of our divisions which are t being addressed by either party. The problem is the expectation politics will fix these divisions.

As to your number 1: politicians are ALWAYS looking out for their careers, like every other sentient American does. Dividing the body poltic, robbing Peter to pay Paul is their means of advancing their careers. Of course there’s corruption, criminal conduct in office, flaunting laws. Politicians do it all the time and numbers of them have gone to jail for it while others have escaped judgement. See the Brothers Bulger in Massachusetts, a number of the governors in Illinois, for starters. I do MOT want any if them with power, devolve the power where it belongs—to sovereign citizens who can earn and spend their money at their discretion, attend local governments, vote locally. Do NOT trust me, but do NOT trust a politician whose incentives are not aligned with your goals.

You’re on record as believing the US should run the world, I disagree. As John Quincy
Adams said,

“America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy.”

Good thing we aren't in John Quincy Adams' day/era...we just might have to seek out the monsters.

You completely distorted my 'America Lead' theme approach...and on purpose I suspect.

I merely state that America's political platform (human rights, etc) are indeed the LEAD to be followed - meaning we are the Leaders to follow - OR name your choice.

But make no mistake...someone WILL.

As for self-serving politicians, you're kidding yourself if you think that you just 'informed me of something new'...and you are also kidding yourself if you think for one minute that there is any other method available to humans to govern and police themselves - there ISN'T!

Humans are flawed, temperament, easily frightened, panicky animals...they need guidance, leadership. They depend on it.

And you calling our Chunky, lying president 'a buffoon'? Weren't you like his #3 A.net supporter just a few weeks ago????

Right, like when the market skyrocketed once Hillary (Obama's third term) and Trump won. Investors and hard working Americans didn't lower the corporate tax rate to compete with other countries, make America more of an oil exporter than importer (and lower the price of fuel), bring back manufacturing jobs which Obama said were never coming back, lower your taxes, etc. other than voting for Trump. But let's give Obama credit or say no President has control over the economy. Also the trade war is Trump's fault but when he wins we can once again thank Obama.

As if Trump inherited a depression and turned it around in a month. Of course, we wouldn't know with distorting Fox News graphics and constant blares from Trump at how the economy was collapsing, how the unemployment rate was close to 42%, and how the Fed was keeping rates low intentionally to help Obama.

Obama apparently had control over oil prices when they went up but it was the free market when it collapsed. When Bush was president, he was praised for low prices but exonerated when oil peaked (because it was the free market).

Unemployment began a steady decline during the Obama years. He apparently didn't have control. Trump comes in, the pace continues, and "OH MY GOD IT'S THE TRUMP ECONOMY!!".

Stock market skyrocketed under Obama, but that wasn't an indicator of the overall economy. Stock market continues to climb under Trump (though it's stalled since) and "OMG! BEST ECONOMY EVER!!".

Yes. The farmers are winning so much that bailouts have to be authorized for them (not counting the floods from the totally normal weather patterns we've had). The factory workers are winning so much that plants continue to shut down or lay off workers due to automation (you know, because factories need more tax breaks). Tell me you don't believe that tariffs are "replenishing the Treasure coffers" because if you do, I have a forest in Libya I'd like to sell to you.

Nobody should be condemning him or applauding him for doing this. That is because we just don’t know what is going on behind the scenes. The only thing we know for certain is that nobody on this forum has enough information to make an informed opinion one way or the other. Of course that never stopped anyone.

Barring right after 9/11, the economy under Bush who I didn't vote for (him or his dad) was fine for 7.5 of 8 years, except for a time when gas was too high (not the $5 per gallon Obama wanted though) Naturally the economy is going to go up after a near depression, and Obama deserves credit for overseeing the slowest recovery in our nation's history.

You are confirming what I said about the trade war, it's Trump's fault until we win.

First of all, we had to spend eight years listeining to the right whine and complain about how Obama destroyed the country. Every. Single. Day. OMG!!! HE IS WEARING A TAN SUIT!! IT IS THE END OF THE REPUBLIC!! OMG!!! HE WANTS AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE FOR ALL!!! IT IS THE END OF THE REPUBLIC!! OMG!! HE IS MEETING WITH PAKISTANI LEADERS!! IT IS THE END OF THE REPUBLIC!! OMG!!! HE IS USING DIJON MUSTARD!! IT IS THE END OF THE REPUBLIC!! Even today we have to hear how Obama is still to blame. Two years after he left office.

As far as your Adams quote, that does not explain the right demanding the invasion and occupation of Iraq and "training" exercises near Iran and Libya and Syria.

None of that excuses the fact that individual number one defends and supports and gushes over dictators. Not the people of those countries but the leader who executes or disappears political opponents. Something Republicans seem to also support.....
You bet I'm pumped!!! I just had a green tea!!!

Watch out. He's likely gonna say "it could be faster if Democrats cooperated instead of obstructing"...because, you know, holding Congress for 4 years (2 under Obama and 2 under Trump) wasn't enough for the GOP to come up with sensible actions that could gather bipartisan support, ramming everything through reconciliation instead.

Humor me, since 1950 in your opinion have we had a buffoon for president before Trump?

If not who do you consider our last buffoon president?

Oh , *now* he’s a buffoon. ;)

I used to get riled up at people here who had the audacity to defend the indefensible. Then they opened up their pieholes enough for me to realize: 1) there’s a serious mental deficiency occurring; 2) they’re so amoral as to render themselves shockingly out of touch with the human race; or 3) their lives are so uninspiring that trolling is the only meaningful contact they have with others.

Thoughts and prayers to them all. :wave:
