How rude is that?” You know, that’s an excellent question, and let me tell you why it happened. In official Washington protocol, no one goes through a doorway before the president. No one."

    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    That's what comes to mind off the top of my head. I can think of nothing in particular about the current administration that I like. I hate Trump and everything he stands for.

    I don't think Trump is an idiot like many other leftists do. I think he is a malign actor who is, and was always, controlled by a certain foreign government and using his presidential authority to act in the interests of that hostile foreign power by undermining our relationships with the rest of the Western world, the progressive Kurdish fighters in Syria, and beyond.
    You forgot his wife and family. We'll put you down as a maybe on Trump, OK?

    The Justice System has undermined itself. They tried and are still trying to frame him and you expect respect and civility from him? I think he needs to fire the majority of the Obama stacked Justice Department starting with Rosenstein.

    I like his first supreme court pick, his latest one not so much. I can appreciate the seating of constitutionalist textualist, literalist on the most powerful court.


    How anybody can not like the lowest unemployment rates for blacks and Latin Americans ever is beyond me. The flimsey argument that Obama set the stage for that is preposterous in my opinion.


    I appreciate his foreign policy. The dressing down of the NATO Europeans for their intentional failure to pay a fair share of NATO dues tickles me pink. It's been way too long coming. I like the fact that he wants to negotiate with everybody even Russia and North Korea and always is looking for the best or a better deal for the United States. He's right about our leverage being our advantage. They need us more than we need them policy.


    I'm a newly converted fan of his wall on our southern border.


    I have some issues with Trump, his narcissistic personality, (but I do like his total disregard for political correctness.)


    I question his, what I see as overkill, with military spending.


    I oppose his signing a bloated, outrageous, ungodly, debt riddled federal budget.

    I like some of what he has done and dislike some. But warm deficit and debt continue to remain huge issues regardless of who we put in the whitehouse

    Fair enough: I can't really think of a particular Trump that I've got a lot of respect left for either; especially Donald Trump Jr., whom I've actually come to despise even more than his father.

    I've also thought of something else I dislike about the president: I dislike the decision to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

    I don't exactly see what's "amazing" about that. There is actually some circumstantial evidence that the relationship may go back potentially all the way to 1987!

    What really persuades me though isn't the famous dossier (which yes I find wholly believable) or the circumstantial evidence to which I have just alluded or anything that's come out of Robert Mueller's investigation to date. It's the evidence of Trump's behavior as president that convinces me beyond doubt that he's a tool owned by Moscow.

    Far more than just his border policies, Trump has also brought us into a trade war, primarily with U.S. allies, and not least of which the European Union. He's also supported Brexit when the vote happened, just yesterday argued forcefully that British Prime Minister Theresa May had not pursued a full and sufficiently aggressive form of Brexit that would adequate isolate the UK from the EU, that France should withdraw from the EU, and has just been touring Europe touting NATO as a kind of protection racket wherein Europe either pays their protection money or else we just won't be responsible for what happens. He has also pledged to withdraw our support from the Kurdish fighters in Syria (a cause particularly important to me, as a strong ideological ally of their's) by the end of the year so that the Russian-controlled regime of Bashir Al Assad, together with the also-Russian-controlled regime of Erdogan in Turkey, can destroy them as a reward for their (mostly complete) defeat of the Islamic State! He has also withdrawn us from major international bodies and agreements ranging from the Paris Accord on climate change to the UN Human Rights Council and beyond. He is clearly pursuing an isolationist policy on a wide range of fronts. And it's in that context that I have to question the motives behind his proposals to let Russia rejoin the G7, his government's curious attempts to lift sanctions on the Russian state, and much more. Why is a hostile foreign government that illegally intervened in our last presidential election curiously the one major and consistent exception to Trump's zeal for American, and indeed Western, isolation? You see what I'm getting at? He ACTS like a foreign agent! THAT is what persuades me more than anything else that he, in fact, is one.

    And thanks to these ongoing investigations (to say nothing of the fact of who one of campaign managers was!), we have a steadily growing body of evidence to show plentiful motives and opportunities for this kind of corruption to have happened. And it could go all the way back to his first forays into American politics. As far as I'm concerned, that Trump is first and foremost working in the service of Moscow is not an opinion, but a self-evident fact at this point.

    Yesterday the American president was forced to hide out in the British countryside for his meeting with the British prime minister because over in London, hundreds of thousands of protesters were jamming the streets to denounce the meeting's occurrence at all in no uncertain terms. Will he meet with a comparable reception when he visits Russia to meet with Vladimir Putin in private in a couple days? Of course not. That contrast concentrates much. That our current government is more hated in London than in Moscow tells you what you need to know about the nature and status of our international relationships.

    I give Trump a B+. He has kept a lot of promises.


    I like how he treats the Lame Stream Media.....needs to treat them even worse than he does.


    I like how he is able to trick the Democrats and their Cult following, making them look like mopes. Needs to make them look worse and show them why they are failures and victims waiting to happen. I like how he don't accept their PC game.


    I like how he is filling up the Courts with Originalists. I am good with his SCOTUS picks even though I preferred another with this last pick.


    I like how he is building the military back up. Recognizing just how weak BO the Peep caused the military to be. Recognizing we still need more to get things back on track.


    I like that he got the tax cuts and the economy has improved off them and the de-regulation. Along with all the good news that has come with it. Lowest unemployment for Blacks, Latinos, and Women.


    I like that he has saved the US major money by pulling out of the Paris Accord. Saved us money with dropping out of TPP.


    I like he took money away from the UN, and the Palestinians. I like the way he is treating the Euros. China. Canada and Mexico. Although he needs to up the pressure on Mexico. A Whole lot more. I like that he moved the Embassy to Jerusalem.


    I don't like or agree with him on raising the age of firearms to 21. I don't like nor agree with him on giving the Dreamers a pathway to Citizenship. I don't like or agree with him on Keeping Sessions as AG. I don't like that he hasn't declassified the Page FISA warrant. Or that he hasn't sent Rosenstein out to pasture. Or that he hasn't taken a harder stance on the FBI and the IC.


    I don't like that he is giving Mattis what he wants by keeping our people in Syria. Or in Irag and playing to the Shia. I don't like the way he is allowing Mattis to play with Afghanistan. Nor any nation building with that $#@!hole.


    Oh, and I do like that he has erased damn near all of BO the Peeps Legacy. Causing the Demos and the leftness to go into sheer madness.
