You want that guy your prez wants, stop pressing the Saudis over that murder they did and you can have him.  Is anyone surprised that this even has a chance of being true with the TRUMP!! administration?

Trump administration's reported effort to 'barter' a US resident to convince Turkey to ramp down Khashoggi probe stuns foreign policy veterans

  • National-security and foreign-policy veterans were floored by a bombshell report that the US weighed extraditing one of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's biggest enemies to get Turkey to ease up on its investigation into the killing of journalist of Jamal Khashoggi.
  • Turkey is furious at the Saudi government for carrying out Khashoggi's murder at the kingdom's consulate in Turkey.
  • The White House reportedly floated the idea of booting out Fethullah Gulen, an exiled Turkish cleric and legal US resident, in exchange for Ankara backing off of the Khashoggi inquiry.
  • "This is the Trump administration seeking to barter away a US resident who has lived here legally for years," Ned Price, the former Senior Director of the National Security Council, told INSIDER.
  • "If the White House seriously considered it, it shows to what lengths the [Jared] Kushner camp was willing to go to protect [Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman] in Riyadh," said another foreign-policy expert.

 

thats right out of House of Cards. 

 

Sad fact is most of Trumps base wouldn't consider this guy a real American and wouldn't honour his citizenship. This right here is a good example of why you cant let conservative governments get away with bringing in two-tiered citizenship.

Oh no. Someone doesn't like people speaking their minds on a subject, so they come up with the word du jour in echo chamber.

The only thing that's tired is your attempt at being a neutral observer, when you're really nothing more than a Trumpian disciple. Try offering something into the conversation outside of poor spelling and grammar.

Good band. That bee video was great.

If memory serves, the incident was around '94 before cell phones with cameras.  I don't think there was ever any footage, these days it would have gone viral ( no STD pun intended :wacko:).

 

In fact, if it was today....Trump would be tweeting from front row with something like " I attended because they have a song called 'No Rain', FAKE NEWS! it is in fact raining in here! Sad. However, I am finding that I enjoy these sprinkles quite a bit!"

Anther day, another example of the bigotry that is now commonplace in Trump's America:
 

https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/world/texas-man-sues-greyhound-says-he-was-kicked-off-bus-because-his-name-is-mohammad/ar-BBPKrGb?li=AAggFp4

Quote

 

An Arlington, Texas, man filed suit against Greyhound Bus Lines on Wednesday, saying he was kicked off a bus in the middle of the night because he is Middle Eastern.

Mohammad Reza Sardari says he was “abandoned in the middle of the night at a dark and closed bus station in Wichita, Kansas” while taking the bus from Dallas to Kansas City, Missouri, in 2017.

Sardari said in the federal suit, filed in Dallas, that he was harassed by the bus driver, assaulted by fellow passengers and removed from the bus by Greyhound security.

Since then, he said, Greyhound has defamed him in the media by saying he was removed from the bus because he “became unruly.”

Sardari also took video of the driver forcing him to leave the bus.

“On the video, Dr. Sardari can be heard calmly asking for an explanation as to why he was being asked to leave the bus,” the lawsuit states. “Neither Greyhound security not the driver provided one.”

Greyhound Lines, Inc. was not available for comment Wednesday night.

That sounds about right. I was the manager of a bar at the time and I remember the Molson's rep (who was at the concert) telling me the story. 

 

According to him, Shannon was well endowed and drew attention to the fact with gold paint....:wacko:

Africa is no longer considered where the first humans originated...that would be your homeland Australia ;)

A couple of hundred bone pieces which make up 40 percent of a female skeleton that researchers named Lucy was found in the Afar Depression in Ethiopia.

She is of the hominin species Australopethecus afarensis

 

It is dated at roughly 3.2 million years old.

All the research I have read states that human migration might have began somewhere in South western Africa however  there in not enough fossil evidence to determine which part of Africa humans first appeared in.

President Pinocchio was in fine form leading up to the mid-terms:

My favorite line is the underlined one....Basically it say that the only time Trump isn't lying is when he isn't speaking.....:rolleyes:

What he is doing is playing on human nature,if you do something often enough people become used to/accept it.

 

Not that I think he is smart enough to come to that conclusion though that is the end result.

I'm not saying Trumps a racist.

 

I am just saying he;'s a motivational speaker for racists

 

https://www.cbc.ca/news/entertainment/fiddler-man-hitler-trump-outburst-1.4907125

 

A man laced the atmosphere of a Baltimore theatre with menace when he began shouting "Heil Hitler! Heil Trump!" during intermission of a classic play set in a Jewish village in czarist Russia.

The patron's pro-Nazi and pro-Trump outburst during a Wednesday night production of Fiddler on the Roof sent dozens of panicked people running for the exits at Baltimore's Hippodrome Theatre.

 

Rich Scherr, a technology and financial journalist who was one of over 1,000 theatregoers attending the Wednesday night performance, said a man seated in the balcony was behind the commotion.

cherr described stunned audience members freezing in fear when the man began shouting minutes into the intermission.

"Everything just got really, really quiet. And then I heard this guy screaming: "Heil Hitler! Heil Trump!" he said in a Thursday phone interview.

Other patrons told him they also heard the man yell about "MAGA," U.S. President Donald Trump's "Make America Great Again" slogan.

A few dozen people started running for the exits, according to Scherr, while others began calling out for security. Scherr said he braced for the possibility of gun violence in the packed theatre.]

"You don't want to think the worst, but I was preparing to react in case of gunfire," Scherr said.

The theatre scare comes a few weeks after a gunman fatally shot 11 people inside a Pittsburgh synagogue. The suspect in that shooting, Robert Bowers, 46, expressed hatred of Jews during the rampage and later told police that "all these Jews need to die," authorities said. It also comes days after the FBI released a report showing a 17 per cent spike in U.S. hate crimes in 2017 — with a 37 per cent increase in anti-Semitic hate crimes.

In a tweet, Jonathan Greenblatt, the chief executive officer of the Anti-Defamation League, responded to a Baltimore Sun article about the incident, describing it as "yet another sign that these are not normal times."

'Everyone was shaken up'

After several minutes, the man was quietly escorted out of the Baltimore theatre by security and the show continued without incident after the intermission ended. But Scherr said he thinks "everyone was shaken up" in the audience for the remainder of the night.

The Baltimore police said officers responded to the Hippodrome at 9:40 p.m. ET, but no arrest was made and the man was allowed to leave on his own.

"Though reprehensible, the man's words are considered protected free speech because he did not directly threaten anyone," said Matt Jablow, a spokesman for the Baltimore Police Department.

The Hippodrome Theatre said such behaviour would not be tolerated. They said their security co-ordinated efforts with city police who met the man as he was escorted out of the building.

 

We do not tolerate behavior like we saw last night during intermission at “Fiddler.” Security handled the situation swiftly. Our venue has a proud tradition of providing shared experiences to people from all walks of life and we will continue that tradition.

 
19 people are talking about this
 
 
 

"Our venue has a proud tradition of providing shared experiences to people from all walks of life, right in the heart of this wonderfully diverse city, and we intend to continue that tradition in the spirit of bringing people together, not dividing them," the theatre said in a statement Thursday.

Fiddler on the Roof is a bittersweet musical revolving around a poor Orthodox Jewish milkman, his rebellious daughters and other community members of a village in czarist Russia, and their faith that is tested by progress and repression. Set in 1905, it's based on stories originally written in Yiddish by Sholom Aleichem.

The original Broadway production in 1964 starred Zero Mostel and had an almost eight-year run, offering the world such enduring songs as Sunrise, SunsetIf I Were a Rich Man and Matchmaker, Matchmaker. It's long been a staple for schools and community theatre groups.

The Wednesday night incident was first reported by The Baltimore Sun.

The president of the United States ladies and gentlemen.....

 

Quote

If you've been conscious between 2015 and today, chances are you're aware that Donald Trump, the president, has pretty unorthodox beliefs. I'm not talking about the blatant racism and overt corruption that has marked his administration—I'm talking about the straight-up weird parts of Trump's worldview. Like how he hates sharks because they are "disgusting creatures" and once said, according to Stormy Daniels, "I'll donate to just about anything, but the only shark charity I would donate to is one that promised to kill all the sharks."

 

Becoming the most powerful person in the world hasn't altered his deeply odd perceptions. In an interview on Wednesday, Trump claimed, “If you buy a box of cereal—you have a voter ID.” Trump's apparent unfamiliarity with buying groceries falls in line with the sad fact that the wealthy and famous are often out of touch with the world of us plebeians—Trump's good friend Tom Brady tried his first strawberry at the age of 40, Hillary Clinton hasn't driven a car since 1996, and multiple celebrities legitimately believe the earth is flat.

Still, despite our already incredibly low expectations for Trump, he is the president, and thinking about what he believes is a genuinely frightening exercise. So let's take a journey through the most &^@#ed-up, dumb things the commander-in-chief of the world's most powerful military legit believes:

 

 

1. You need ID to buy cereal

In an interview with the Daily Caller, Trump harped on one of his favorite issues: voter fraud. “If you buy a box of cereal—you have a voter ID,” the president said. “They try to shame everybody by calling them racist, or calling them something, anything they can think of, when you say you want voter ID. But voter ID is a very important thing.”

A regular person who visits a grocery store on a weekly basis could tell you the thing about cereal is not true. But how would Trump know otherwise? He grew up rich, which makes you wonder whether he's ever visited a grocery store at all.

2. Exercise uses up your body's finite energy

"He considers exercise misguided, arguing that a person, like a battery, is born with a finite amount of energy," the New Yorker reported in 2017. And a biography of the president asserts:

After college, after Trump mostly gave up his personal athletic interests, he came to view time spent playing sports as time wasted. Trump believed the human body was like a battery, with a finite amount of energy, which exercise only depleted.

Do I even have to debunk this?

3. Young people pay $12 a year for health insurance

Despite his promises of healthcare for everyone throughout his campaign, Trump has only made insurance more expensive for the average person during his time in office. Maybe that's because he never understood how much healthcare costs the average American—in a 2017 New York Times interview, the president said, "You’re 21 years old, you start working and you’re paying $12 a year for insurance, and by the time you’re 70, you get a nice plan." Actually, insurance costs young people at least $100 a month.

4. Asbestos could have saved the World Trade Center

I $&!# you not, in 2012, Trump tweeted, “If we didn't remove incredibly powerful fire retardant asbestos & replace it with junk that doesn’t work, the World Trade Center would never have burned down.”

5. And the mob is the reason we think asbestos is bad

Per Politico, Trump asserts the following in his book, The Art of the Comeback:

I believe that the movement against asbestos was led by the mob, because it was often mob-related companies that would do the asbestos removal. Great pressure was put on politicians, and as usual, the politicians relented.

 

6. Environmentally friendly lightbulbs cause cancer

7. Sleeping is bad

Trump has often bragged about only sleeping four hours a night, and honestly, it shows. “Don’t sleep any more than you have to,” he said in his 2004 book, Think Like a Billionaire. "I usually sleep about four hours per night... and it gives me a competitive edge. I have friends who are successful who sleep ten hours a night, and I ask them, 'How can you compete against people like me if I only sleep four hours?' It can rarely be done."

8. "Email is for wimps."

In Think Like a Billionaire, Trump also warns against the evils of technology, foreshadowing one of his main 2016 platforms, "but her emails."

"Don't depend on technology," Trump advises. "If you have something important to say, look the person in the eye and say it. And if you can't get there, pick up the phone and make sure they hear the sincerity in your voice. E-mail is for wimps."

Next time Trump tweets, I hope he thinks about that.

9. Vaccines cause autism

In a 2015 GOP debate, Trump said, “I am totally in favor of vaccines," but nevertheless asserted the following misinformation about them:

"You take this little beautiful baby, and you pump—I mean, it looks just like it is meant for a horse, not for a child, and we had so many instances, people that work for me, just the other day, 2 years old, beautiful child went to have the vaccine and came back and a week later got a tremendous fever, got very, very sick, now is autistic."

10. Wind power is bad because it kills birds

As he's established, Trump is not a fan of environmentally friendly energy. Just look at his musings on wind turbines:

Unlike some of Trump's other beliefs, this is at least a myth in wide circulation, but it's still a myth—bird deaths due to turbines are relatively rare.

11. Shaking hands is evil

A notorious germaphobe, Trump has said "the simple act of shaking hands" is "barbaric" and a "curse of American society."

12. He apparently hates dogs

Calling others dogs is one of Trump's go-to insults, and according to the Washington Post, it's because he "has an aversion to dogs and other pets," and thus "considers canine comparisons to be among his most devastating put-downs."

13. He's more popular than Abraham Lincoln

In a July, Trump cited an imaginary poll that found he was a more popular Republican president than Abraham Lincoln. “You know, a poll just came out that I am the most popular person in the history of the Republican Party—92 per cent. Beating Lincoln. I beat our Honest Abe," Trump said.

14. The F-35 stealth fighter is literally invisible

As an exhaustive Task & Purpose rundown of Trump's comments showed, the president lavished the expensive stealth plane with praise to the point where he implied that the fighter isn't just hidden on radar but literally impossible to see. "It wins every time because the enemy cannot see it. Even if it’s right next to it, it can’t see it," Trump said last year. Say what you will about the world he lives in, it's not a boring place.
