    Well reports that just came in to MS News leaked from a source at the White House says that Trump really pissed off the Prime Minister of Australia regarding Obama's prior commitment to take 1,250 refuges temporarily located in Australia. Trump wanted to renege on the deal as he has a freeze on refugees.

    Also it was leaked that Trump in his phone call to the President of Mexico, Pena Nieto threatened to send in American troops to Mexico.

    "WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump teatened in a phone call with his Mexican counterpart to send U.S. troops to stop "bad hombres down there" unless the Mexican military does more to control them, according to an excerpt of a transcript of the conversation obtained by The Associated Press."

    "You have a bunch of bad hombres down there," Trump told Pena Nieto, according to the excerpt given to AP. "You aren't doing enough to stop them. I think your military is scared. Our military isn't, so I just might send them down to take care of it."

    Donald Trump is losing friends fast.

    But I thought der ubergroppenfuhrer spewed invective against wars during his campaign. Just another lie out of his piehole.

    Schmidt and Lonely; that is not all!! The newly installed "whatever: threatened Iran in an quick announcement. I forgot the wording but on MSNBC they said that it could mean anything, even war, the way it was formulated.

    Anyway, I can imagine what the "middle east" is thinking: First he makes an statement to "take" the oil; then he bans "Muslims", then he wants to undo the nuclear agreement and threatens them . I don't think this will work. If he continues on this path then in no time the whole middle east will erupt in war including Israel. All it needs is "one" match.

    As another sideline: At an California University they invited an Breithart speaker; riots broke out to stop the guy.

    As I said in many of my "threads" we are going downhill in an rapid fashion; I'm amazed that people here stay that patient about all of this. In other countries an guy like that would have been dethroned by force.

    About the Berkeley uproar; Trump now stated that there should be "freedom of speech" yes sure, only when it suits him.

    The point is simple: the GOP is sending this Breithart guy to "indoctrinate" the Bannon Nazi mentality,so these kids will then vote for the far right in the future. Thus this protest is warranted. I hope the University is so smart that they let the guy talk to an total empty auditorium. I hope people in this country finally see; that an new Hitler has arisen. Extreme dangerous indeed.

    I am pretty much finished. Before all of this happened I explained Trump. I explained the conditions that allowed him to resonate. I explained how not to and how to deal with him in the campaign. It would be different if I had just made a prediction of what would happen, but I explained in detail why what would happen. And all I see is total denial of why Trump is President and total denial of the conditions that made him president and total denial of how to deal with him. As the search for excuses for his victory continues outrage grows daily over him. The outrage is an excuse for letting him get elected and all the outrage does is to solidify the diversification. The mechanism behind the outrage is when it gets so bad some savior will come to the rescue. Unfortunately that has always been the standard procedure. Nobody absolutely nobody can present the need for a stop sign at an intersection until half the population is killed at the intersection. Righteous indignation is not a solution. Objective reasoning is a solution. Hopefully some charismatic hero will appear before the world destroys itself because no rational solution has the sensational dramatic appeal to capture support. Stupidity is king supported by elitist pride. Pretty soon the jailing of opposition will start as people with the correct thinking will be obligated to the visible front of increasingly violent demonstrations.

    self aggrandizing is the term attributed to Trump. Glad to know there's plenty. News flash. It's not about you.

    Made my point better than I could. It is absolutely true it is not about me. It is so glaringly obvious but nobody sees it. Trump will get stronger and nobody will step forward to unify the Democratic Party to stand for human rights. The right-wing conservatives have made the population embarrassed to join together to work for the common good.
