Sorry Arizona; the people who "voted" for Trump, now still about 38%, don'care and don't read the report. They will stick with him until the end; neither do I think that the report will make any difference in the opinion of people ; they either think he's an total "asshole" or "god" did sent him. I think an "middle" of the road is no longer participating. It is now very partisan. Sure for us it is nice to know the "report", but does it help?
I still find Mueller an "coward"; he wrote it and should therefore also defend it, as well provide an clean "unredacted" report to the House oversight committee. You either stand by what you wrote or you are an weasel and duck it.
Sorry Schmidt, it sounds boring but here I go again.
People here don't realize what is going on with "trade" and don't seem to care. The consequences all over the world in the tech industries are already felt. The Huawei company in China was "blackmailed" and "banned" from doing business here. This is also felt in Europe by ASML (Dutch) who makes the machines who produce the "chips" as well NXP (Dutch) who's an speciality chip maker who sells these to Huawei. Both have also factories in the US. Thus thanks to Trump, the whole world suffers. Of course the stocks of these companies tanked today.
Trump will find out the hard way, what China is all about. At least they've got an infrastructure plan and carry it out.
The funny part is that here (in an add) they show an French TGV train going at high speed and "attached" the sound of an regular US diesel train to it. (if an TGV, then you hear only an "whoosh" sound because it has an silicone rubber lining on the wheels; but I guess they don't know that here, when they made the add) I also heard that California who wanted an high speed train, did not get the "money" for it from Washington; Trump wants to use it for something else (or "himself"?) Yes China is getting ahead of us also in "space". Keep on dreaming Trump.
I saw an "map" on TV, which showed which States are introducing the anti-abortion craziness; it is typical those States who are super Christian and "backwards" as well not in the coastal area's. I believe that in those States also idiots like McConnell and others from Kentucky and S. Carolina have an huge influence in our government. The reason for that is the "electoral college"; why have a country run by an crazy backwards minority? The "brains are mostly in the coastal area's (except Florida and S.& N.Carolina as well some weird States at the East coast). I guess all of this has to do with "education" or "rural" area's where the time stood still. Therefore the curriculum of what the kids get, should not be tied to churches or politically motivated; i.e. keep them "dumb" then they will vote for us. If you hear and see some of the senators from those States then most of the time I have to puke, about how in hell did they get into those positions. Like an Jordan, Rand Paul, Graham, etc. Kentucky (a tiny "nothing" State) has the biggest influence in our government via McConnell; how is that possible?
I hope some people have looked at "Fareed"(CNN) today; he had some excellent pieces about Iran and China. It is clear that Trump and his cronies have no idea about either country. I guess Trump is forgetting that the US is already for a long time is not number "one" in the world.. But still acts like they are. It is like an mouse who demands something from an elephant. China and Russia combined occupy the largest landmass on earth; they have therefore also the largest resources. But the "mouse" (Trump) has no idea how to "negotiate" with an "elephant" (China) At least China has an "plan" and "policy" , we've got none; everything is ad-hoc. without any planning or let alone an "back-up" plan. All Trumps foreign policies have failed until now.
Since the fight is also about "intelligent property" it is silly on how the US approaches such. Lots of US based companies have plants and distribution in China. The point is, how can they otherwise produce goods, if you don't tell them how to make it, if it is subject to "intelligent property" . BMW built cars here, so how do they built these here, without German drawings and engineering? or "intelligent property" issues and "patents"?. The same applies for China. So it is no wonder they will "copy" things all the time as every country does. How come that cars and cellphones are made all over the place, even in Russia. We "crashed" planes all over the world; guess what, someone will copy everything what was in it. Guess who's got lots of satellites "spying" on us.For instance China as well Russia know exactly what's in an F35 and how it works, as well where they are deployed.etc.
Playing the "bully" will not get you anywhere in this world, except may be here in the US.
Item number 4 stating "material was destroyed or missing" is enough evidence that an effort was made to hide the truth. Mueller should know who destroyed evidence.
There was an "fire " in Trump tower; he was a lot there in the start of the campaign, probably shredding and burning evidence.

Looking at all your "posts" here ( which are all to the point) you could compile an book of it!
Schmidt Wrote:I will say it again too
Dutch -- I will say it again. Amongst other deficiencies, it was well know that Trump knew shit about foreign affairs, cultures and governments other than bribing people at the top for real estate deals. He was called ignorant on foreign policies, but that didn't matter to the 63 million who voted for him because they too were largely ignorant...not to mention a bunch of bigots. I could cite sources on the internet that goes back way before the election that highlighted what was wrong with Trump, but it just didn't matter to a whole bunch of them. He was vetted and for many of the people who voted for him said, "so what". For others he was speaking their language.
He could win again in 2020 despite all the subsequent vetting by Mueller and others. For his most avid supporters it just doesn't matter.
; as I wrote many times that this is an stupid country without proper up to date laws reflecting 2019
, let alone having strict laws (not just rules) for the leaders of this country as well "elections' which are "bribed' all the way with lots of money from "billionaires etc. Dock said it correctly" only "money" counts here, not "brains"
. And it does not matter how you got it, or paid any taxes, as long as you have an "bully" mouth and plenty of "handout" bribe money and ask "loyalty". In the meantime Trump making 424 million (where did that money come from, doing nothing?) in 2018.
On top of that having 63 million uneducated
voters as you said, because we rather spent our tax money on wars and war tools than "education
" Amen. Even an"zillion" lawyers can't fix this country. The truth hurts.

Amen, as well how much B.S. you can spew out and "bribe" people with $$$$$$$$$$$$$$.
It seems according to Bill Maher that more and more fanatic Catholics are being incorporated into the government. Pompeo, Pence, Barr, Corsuch, Kavanaugh, Bolton etc. all are Catholics who have an "agenda" about "abortion"' and "church" involvement in "governing". It has actually become an counter movement against Muslims or even Protestants, ( like in Ireland). While in other places in the world, like in Europe fewer people go to church or have an "'belief" , the opposite is here the case. Any religion is in fact used to get "power" over the people. Once the "church" pushes its way into the government, then you get the same as with the Inca's then "religion" is running the country as an dictatorship; they determine how you live and think. It works like an obedience "class" The object is total "control" over you and your body and mind.
The Catholic church always has been the most murderous church in Western civilizations (except Muslims they are not sweethearts either as any "religion") They probably killed more people since inception, than the "black plague". Especially in France and Spain and South America where they killed lots of Inca's and Maya's and stole their gold. Burn the "witches" and during the crusades kill the Palestinians (as is done now by the Jews, another "religion"). Sorry people "churches" were never meant to save your non-existent soul( ask any doctor if he can operate on it) , but just want your "money" and "obedience" via "indoctrination", with the threat that otherwise you never will enter an non-existent "heaven"' on Mars; without "brains" because they no longer work if they are "dead", They don't have an "backup" as your computer has.. It is just having unconditional "power" over the people via "threats" ; the same as certain politicians do. Sorry "religion" is an "curse" invented" by humans.
Yes Schmidt, did they "vet" Ross? Highly qualified I guess.
Also don't forget China has also investments in our stock market like Apple and others who have plants there. They could do the same as in Russia; nationalize those. Furthermore as an simple option, bar any US imports. Sorry to say China is quite an larger country with more "educated people" than this "banana republic" as well they have an "planning" until 2025 which they likely will meet. They know hardships and can live with it; they did for 4000 years. I doubt if we can do that here with only 300 years behind us. I guess the US is under-estimating the "power" of China and its fast development in all area's.
