Zitat von: Peiresc am 26. April 2017, 06:41:19In meinen Augen ist das aber nicht der Punkt. Meine Übersetzung dieser Episode: Er wird gefragt: Wen würden Sie am liebsten los werden? Und seine Antwort ist: Reince Priebus. ZitatI think Reince (Priebus) has been doing an excellent job.

ZitatTop Trump administration officials will brief all 100 senators next week about North Korea's provocative behavior, according to guidance sent to lawmakers Friday.
ZitatRogue POTUS Staff Vor 6 StundenToday POTUS will make his case for war. Not because it's necessary. Because he thinks it's what a President is supposed to do.Laura Wright: Because it'll get his ratings up? I hate him so much.Rogue POTUS Staff: Precisely. All the praise for being "Presidential" when he bombed Syria went to his head. Now he's looking for his next fix.
ZitatIf anyone knows what the Trump administration is up to when it comes to North Korea, Sen. Ben Cardin should.[...]"I have heard nothing [from the White House]," he said. "In my congressional career, there's never been a similar type of meeting held at the White House."[...]Nobody wants to see the US go to war with Pyongyang, as the costs could be unimaginably high. As Alex Ward noted at Vox, North Korea is pointing thousands of artillery pieces at the South Korean city of Seoul; one war game estimated that North Korea could kill 100,000 people in the city within the first days of a war. What's more, it's not clear that the US could destroy all of North Korea's nuclear weapons before the country could fire a missile — and its shorter-range missiles are capable of hitting Japan, South Korea, and the tens of thousands of US troops stationed in the two countries.
ZitatRPS: Whatever else happens during his tenure, POTUS has done something nobody else ever accomplished: Drafted a tax plan in less than a week.Jeb Bishop: that's not a tax planRPS: True. Perhaps we should refer to it as his tax hypothesis. Literally demanded 4%* growth be written into it. Just because.
ZitatInsightful by @sarahkendzior. Bannon has receded but there's a new evil on POTUS' shoulder & whispering in his ear.https://thecorrespondent.com/6591/the-tale-of-the-dictators-daughter-and-her-princeSarah Kendzior: Thanks but I actually argue in the article that Bannon has not truly receded, and that this claim has been made in attempt to boost KushnerRPS: We should have worded better. If Jared was previously at 9 and Bannon at 10, Bannon is now at 9 w/ Jared and Ivanka both at 10. But that is no reason to feel better that "moderate" minds have taken the reins. Just prettier faces.

ZitatBelieve me, and it gives me no pleasure to say this, if they are the reason you are sleeping at night, you should probably still be awake.

ZitatThe Russia Investigations Are a JokeThe Kremlin messed with American democracy, and Congress can't be bothered to get to the bottom of it?But the best hope for a credible investigation seemed to lie with the Senate Intelligence Committee [...]Three months after that hopeful launch, the Senate Committee has almost nothing to show to show for its efforts, if indeed there have been any efforts. The committee hasn't interviewed any of the central players, according to Isikoff, despite the fact that several have volunteered to come forward. Not a single subpoena has been issued for documents, emails or phone records. And Burr has not responded to members' requests that he do so.[...]the panel doesn't have enough staffers to do anything. The Daily Beast pointed out that there are currently only seven staffers working on the Senate investigation—all of them part-time! [...] But to put things into perspective, Politics USA points out that the House Benghazi Committee had 46 staffers and 8 interns. The special commission looking into Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction had 88 staffers, and a joint House-Senate probe of Iran-Contra had 181 staffers.http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/04/27/russia-investigations-joke-donna-brazile-215080
ZitatTillerson: Kim Jong Un 'is not crazy'"All indications are that he is not crazy," Tillerson told Fox News. "He may be ruthless. He may be a murderer. He may be someone who in many respects we would say by our standards is irrational. But he is not insane."

Zitat von: Groucho am 28. April 2017, 09:37:06Sich als Außenminister so zu äußern, da bedürfte es schon einer strategischen Überlegung mit einer Zielrichtung, ich befürchte aber, dass es undurchdachtes Geplapper ist.
ZitatFor a fee, Corey Lewandowski, President Trump's pugilistic former campaign manager, and Barry Bennett, a former Trump senior adviser, will protect you from "tweet risk" — what happens to the stock price and reputation of your company when the president tells his 26 million Twitter followers that you're killing factory jobs or refusing to sell Ivanka Trump handbags.https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/13/opinion/want-to-keep-the-president-at-bay-two-consultants-have-an-inside-track.html?_r=1
ZitatPresident Trump backed off on scrapping the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) after seeing a map showing that states that voted for him would be hurt by the move, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday.Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross gave Trump a map noting that farm and border states that heavily backed Trump in last year's election would lose jobs if the U.S. left the trade deal, the report said.
ZitatFox Business host Lou Dobbs is giving glowing reviews to President Trump's first 100 days calls in office, calling the 45th president "pretty close to perfect."
Zitat,,Ich habe mein früheres Leben geliebt. Ich habe so viele Sachen gemacht", sagte Trump. Er habe nicht erwartet, dass es eine so große Herausforderung wäre, Präsident der Vereinigten Staaten zu sein. ,,Das ist mehr Arbeit als früher. Ich dachte, es würde einfacher sein." Und weiter: ,,Ich vermisse mein altes Leben."
Zitat,,Du lebst wirklich in deinem eigenen, kleinen Kokon, weil du so massiven Schutz erhältst, dass du wirklich nirgendwo hingehen kannst", klagte Donald Trump.Wenn Trump sich darüber ernsthaft beklagt, hat er sich vor seiner Kandidatur noch nicht einmal mit den einfachsten Zusammenhängen beschäftigt, die das Amt mit sich bringt. Und ich fürchte, das ist nicht die einzige Lücke, die sich da klafterweit öffnet. Die Hoffnung, dass dieser Mann möglichst wenig Schaden anrichtet, erfüllt sich leider nicht mehr in Anbetracht all der seltsamen Beschlüsse, die er und sein Team bisher auf den Weg gebracht haben (einiges ist ja zum Glück gescheitert). Die Umwelt wird leiden, die armen Bevölkerungsschichten werden noch mehr leiden und Amerika wird einen kaum wieder gut zu machenden Ansehensverlust erleiden. Na ja, in spätestens 4 Jahren ist der Spuk ja vorbei.
ZitatSo stehet nun, umgürtet an euren Lenden mit Wahrheit und angezogen mit dem Panzer der Gerechtigkeit[Eph 6, 14]
