    The James Bond avatar guy (lol, I think that's what I'll call him from now on) has defended Russia more often than not from others on this board.

    I know this post was a bit ago but this is IMO the absolute key to understanding this psych experiment gone wrong.
    From birth- never held accountable, always bailed out when failing, never ‘worked’ anywhere but within private enterprises where his word was law, always enough money and lawyers to make problems go away. Throw in unfortunate pathological proclivities and you get the first POTUS who is truly disconnected from reality. He’s like America’s Kim John-un or the kid with superpowers from The Twilight Zone that terrorized the small town.

    Foreign leaders and Trump handlers have come up with some rules on how to talk to Trump:

    [​IMG]



    Hmm, I wonder who the "person of interest" in the WH being investigated is?
    [​IMG]




    Also, breaking news (when isn't it?) that Comey is to testify openly before Congress after Memorial Day.




    Oh, I almost forgot, Trump wants to rehire Flynn, regrets firing him:

    On those "rules," I laughed at the first two, and the ones that followed would get a very large "**** that ****" from me.

    Ender hates Turks too so I'm pretty sure they'll get along here. You may have doomed us all SW.

    What are the legal requirements to be guilty of Treason in the US?




    Update:

    last Monday (5/8) - Yates hearing on Russia investigations and more, doesn't look the best for Trump

    last Tuesday (5/9) - Comey fired, shockwaves

    last Wednesday 5/10) - Trump invites Russian foreign minister and ambassador to Oval Office, against protocol, blocks American press, gives Top-Secret Intel from Israel

    last Thursday (5/11) - Trump derails the Pence/Spicer/Huckabee account of Comey firing, saying he'd do it anyways, was thinking about Russia, said he had dinner with Comey begging for his job when he asked about investigation... Comey ally says Trump told Comey that Trump actually demanded loyalty

    last Friday (5/12) - Trump threatens Comey on Twitter with releasing "tapes" that his press won't confirm or deny

    (I don't think anything broke that weekend, for the public anyways)

    this Monday (5/15) - revealed that Trump leaked Top-Secret Intel from Israel to Russia during last week's surprise Oval Office meeting with Russians at center of investigation, and Trump met with the Abu Dhabi Prince who Trump tried to create a backchannel to Russia through (along with the founder of Blackwater, Betsy DeVos's brother)

    this Tuesday (5/16) - content of some Comey memos revealed that Trump asked Comey to forget about investigating Flynn/Russia, after Trump insisted on Pence and Sessions leaving the room, and asked about jailing the press

    this Wednesday (5/17) - Mueller appointed by DoJ/Rosenstein as Special Counsel to oversee the Russia investigation, Pence and Trump and others knew Flynn was under investigation before he was hired and therefore lied, Flynn's Turkish connections seem to have prevented a ready-to-go attack on ISIS HQ, tape shows Ryan/McCarthy talking about Putin paying Trump and swearing not to tell anyone which they first deny and then say is a joke

    yesterday (5/18) - Trump campaign contacted the Kremlin 18 more times than previously disclosed, Trump told Flynn to "stay strong" AFTER firing, it's confirmed Flynn and Manafort are subjects in criminal investigation into Russia/TrumpCampaign

    today (5/19) - It's revealed that Trump boasted to the Russians last week that he fired "nutjob" Comey to take the pressure off him coming from the Russia investigation, Jared Kushner is now a "person of interest" in the investigation, White House is looking for ways to prevent investigation into Kushner/Manafort, Russians were boasting how they can use Flynn to influence Trump a few months ago

    I know the answer, it's written into our constitution, adhering to and aiding enemies. It was a rhetorical question.

    Their community? Would you seriously consider a project housing complex "Yours" if you had to live there? Or a mass of tenements? Any area dominant society forces you to live, whether through direct violence, denial or resources or legal shenanigans, is going to be sub standard. If you had to live in such a manor would you really consider that 'your' community? or just a place society forced you to live?

    These neighborhoods are not villages settled in some distant era because the people at the time found value in the area, they are and were areas of containment no one else wanted to live in. No mythology of bootstrapping or poetic words from pastor is going to change that.
