    Sure enough again bad things happened in London. Of course our asshole leader "tweeted" on that immediately that the "travel ban" should be re-instated. Of course, he's not concerned about the people who were killed or hurt, but only if he can "win" whatever it cost in lives or harm. This guy has to be removed from office immediately; he's obsessed with himself.

    He's a sick, deranged, opertunist, narcissist. Get used to him, he and his followers will be forever explaining how he saved Americans and America from the horrible future had this great man not arrived to make everything better (for him). SMH.

    T.J. good observation; these attacks will continue, guess why? As long as the US continues to wage war in the middle east and other regions, then there will be revenge for all our bombing and killings, one way or another. It is simple as I already said several years before, if you give people food, an roof above their head, education as well an job, then you don't have wars etc. The Trump types don't understand that because they never were poor and only fight to enrich themselves.. If the US would have spent the trillions which they did spent on wars instead on to "feed" and "educate" people in the poor areas of the world then there would have been peace all over. Now "religion" in those regions uses the poor uneducated people as "bait" to get "power" over them, which in turn then becomes then an "money" issue to enrich an few, like is done here. The result is "dictatorship"as Trump adores and wants. The "circle" is complete, be proud of it.

    Bannon steering from the rear end of Donald, he has his nose so far up Donald's ass, it would take a Caterpillar D-10 to pull him loose.

    In response to the Dutch post above, that may be true, instead of spending trillions on bombs and war, they could've built schools, homes, fed, and provided food to those that America and it's coalition forces killed and planted hatred towards us and our allies. That would've made more sense than trying to kill the people America believes is the boogie men. We could have tried to kill them with kindness first. I for one have always thought American foreign policy as it is gets us in more trouble than anything, America and some of it's allies are willing to kill first rather than get a dialogue going. It doesn't cost anything to talk to people.

    If people didn't know any better, we'd assume Trump has the education level of a 3rd. grade child, I'm referring to his tweets directed at the London mayor. The manchild is such a troll. People are hurting, and UK officials are probably doing 110% to try to keep things calm and keep people assured. I don't know why anyone would dig on a country trying to recover from this event. If Trump knows much more than his generals about ISIS, he should begin applying his knowhow and help the UK and other countries defeat the evil. He's a first class jerkoff.

    The Trump Tweets and exchange with the London mayor (he's another Kahn, a name which really gets under Trump's skin) are what one might expect from a toddler having a fit. He has flabbergasted the whole world, but one person defended his Tweets...Sarah Huckabbe Sanders who took Spicer's place at the daily press beefing yesterday.

    Where was Spicer?

    Schmidt; looking at all of this, then I'm staying amazed that this country does not kick the guy out right now. How long to we have to accept all of this crap. The US has lost all its decency as well credibility and only created more and more enemy's in 3 month than any other President ever did. Even the new problem in Quatar is caused by him. He makes an mess of the whole world by his actions and "tweets"; this should not be allowed too long, otherwise the US status in the world will be on the bottom of the list.

    Dutch -- As you well know the process for removing a president from office is not easy. In most European countries a simple vote of no confidence on a major issue is enough to call a new election. But here the process is much more onerous. As the website below outlines the process, their opening line is noteworthy:

    "The involuntary removal of a sitting President of the United States has never occurred in our history."

    After reading the article, you can certainly understand why.

    I think higher up people in UK's government are facing a duh moment after it's been reported that these homicidal maniacs were on their radar previously but they didn't continue to keep watch over them indicating that authorities dropped the ball on this one. Mother Theresa May is now talking about a big roundup now, she's thinking like America thinks now, after 9/11, the Bush administration rounded up foreigners, and held them without due process of law. It's the same thing America did to Japanese, Italians and others during WWII. If she's serious about a roundup, that'll drive home grown extremists deeper into cover making their observation even more difficult.

    Most all of these terrorists are young, in their 20s. Many of them are "home grown" although, perhaps of Middle Eastern descent. The question that needs to be asked -- what is it that drives them to such heinous suicidal acts? Are they marginalized socially and economically (stigmatized) in their own country of birth? Is the stigmatization due to their religious beliefs, or is it more racial and ethnic? Or something else?

    Or are they just victims or prey to unscrupulous leaders and their extremist propaganda?

    If you remove the racial/ethnic/religious factors are some of them just emotionally disturbed for whatever reasons...family perhaps? Most of the mass shootings in the USA are more motivated by family and work problems than political or religious hatred.

    Just saying...

    Like I said in many of my threads; it is time this country moves into the 21th Century; sticking to the antique British based idiology gets us in trouble all the time. However I saw on TV that an person has been assigned to draft the impeachment papers today, but this guy has had plenty of death threats already. Anyway I stick to, that this country is digging its own grave if it sticks to 1800's laws and rules. Also with our voting system, it was shown today that our system is vulnerable to hacking and other tricks. Such disclosure came after it was found out that even the Russians could have hacked voting stations. I saw Trudeau in the middle of common people without 30 bodyguards; even going on an nice canoe trip without body guards. Also the King Alexander in the Netherlands always mingles with people and rides his bike in public. That is the way it should be and can only be achieved if you have an Parlimentary system as well straight forward governing.

    Like I said all of this is an self inflicted deadly wound because this country refuses to adapt the laws to these times, let alone laws about "vetting" an President.

    Yes, they are the disgruntled, feeling left behind, wanting to make a name for themselves, and buy into anyone or anything that may offer them fame, fortune comes in the form of 39 virgins when they reach their final destinations.

    The disgruntled Florida awning factory worker killed with a gun (probably legally acquired) because he'd been dissed by coworkers back in April, he returned and opened fire on his former coworkers.

    I always tell my spouse and myself when we get behind the wheel to drive responsibly and not to agitate or aggravate another driver on the streets or highways, if you do, you just might be killed.
