(Oh, and that, "I'm going to donate any proceeds" was a lie).

$2MM profit in 4 mo for the Trump hotel in Wash D.C.

Notice to ALL:

You can't view articles from the following websites:

Foreignpolicy.com

WAPO.com

NewYorkTimes.com

Here is the way this works. For those posting the articles YOU can see them. For EVERYONE else it blocks the article and will ask for money telling you Great Non-Fake News is NOT free.
Funny. I don't have a subscription to FP and I was able to read it.

But, once again, you deny (or disparage) the existence of anything damaging to Trump that is behind a pay wall, just because you can see it.

You're like my ex denying bills she ran up, or a 2 year old playing peek-a-boo. But I'm not exactly sure which you are: One is intentionally denying reality, the other hasn't developed the appropriate cognitive ability.

Crackpot?

Didnt Manafort have to register as a Foreign agent? Didn't the FBI raid Manaforts house? Seems like things are getting pretty real for him.

Those are facts. You talking about the Clinton's is just a distraction, and yes, crackpotty (pointing to every death over thirty years and scream, "Conspiracy!")

Aren't you jumping to conclusions?

Edited for ease of understanding for you. Guilty because you say so = crackpot.

They brought in the clappers as I remember it. I think the first 2 or 3 rows of people got bussed in then Trump stood in front of the memorial wall of stars and defiled that the best he could.

I also have no fucking idea how you came up with the idea he was welcome in that place.

Trump is going to get rich off the Presidency! He'll probably be able to retire afterwards. Thank God we have steely-eyed investigative guys like you around to catch this stuff.

As you remember it? Stew are you in DC as well? This is all starting to come together now.

I think I was made aware by the fake news you hate so much.

But yes I did live and work in DC for about 6 years. Moved there a few days after my 21st birthday. I lived in Northern Va. A town called Falls Church.

I'm familiar, outside Arlington. I do give DC shit but it's not that bad, especially the outlining areas. Mainly the traffic on 95 pisses me off to no end. I'm country guy. Need land, place to run around. I live in the burbs now but still in the country, strange concept but it works. Looking for land now to build.

The Higgins memo (the full read) is really something. Like tin foil hat on steroids. What I also think is fascinating is the backstory to it involves-leaks! Yet I don't hear nearly as much about the alt-right NSC infiltrators leaking to alt-right bloggers as being a NatSec issue.

As far as articles to places like FP go, apologies to a degree but the truth is that access to good news is the price of doing business. For the record, I don't pay for WaPo or NYT, though I have considered it given how much they are providing these days.

The Atlantic and FP? That's just baseline essentials for being informed. For less than most spend on Starbucks, or some shit-tastic IPA, etc.

Anyone notice how the PRC is becoming the adult in the room? Ironic given all the screams for 'leadership' that were part of the narrative. We are ceding our leadership role everyday.

To little, not sure if it's to late though. They should have been the adult years ago, the perfect time would have been after Il's death. They blew it and are now playing catch-up acting adult like now. They had plenty of time to act like an adult, they just now conveniently decide to stat acting the part.

Trump brings the best out in us all - Why even David Duke himself evoked Trump Clown's name at the alt right demonstration in Charlottesville today. Nothing says "You're judged by the friends you keep." by having a former KKK leader evoke your name for his cause! Thanks Trump Clown!

Actually Brian, we have quite a bit of control over just that. Say stupid shit to stupid people and you'll get stupid friends. Trump Clown strikes again!

No. They are not acting like an adult in the room. Don't let your Trump/GOP hate make you believe nonsense.

Why aren't you and Duke hamming it up at the hate rally in C'vile? You both have a love for Trump in common.

I can't tell if your actually becoming more immature or just more dense. Your blind allegiance to a proven Clown and liar is telling. You're like a little kid that doesn't want to admit wrong or fault. Start another thread for Trump Clown Supporters. You're getting to be very tirring and predictable. Move along Brian.

Tell me smart guy. Who did Duke endorse the past election, or the election before, or before that? By your logic they're all 'judged by the friends they keep.' You're becoming the clown you despise so much with this manure you spew.

Your ramblings sound un-hinged, and that's bad coming from me.

Oh, and I forgot, Me and Duke? That's fresh, why don't go fuck yourself? Sure sounds like you've been drinking Bush and yelling at CNN all day.

First off, let's not get carried away with painting with the broad brush-hate? Bias is appropriate. Unless of course you want to play the converse and saddle up with owning being an alt-right nazi. Somehow I don't think that's you, so I would ask that you not presume on me.

That said, I go back to my statement-China is taking this crisis (and this presidency) to the bank internationally. They may have darker motives for how they are acting-i.e. if you are one of those 'they are challenging the global order' dragon slayers-but it is hard not to watch what they are saying without acknowledging that they are playing the game better than we are. Particularly in the midst of the Un v Trump nuclear dick measuring context.

Our allies (Japan) and our partners (Vietnam) are terrified that the US will strike a grand bargain with the PRC; China deals with the DPRK-we leave them alone vis-a-vis the SCS. Is that nonsense? I don't know-it's what they told us in an official mil-to-mil delegation, and that was before the rhetoric heated up of late.

Worldwide POTUS's falling has dropped-well, except for Russia. He is far more popular in Russia than he is in the US. So that irony aside, I return back to my point. The PRC is having a field day with this, because in comparison they look brilliant.

Is that Trump/GOP hate, or simply taking the data and making a judgment on its meaning?
