This just in: Trump triggered by NATO leaders

Original post made by Reagan Milhouse Lincoln, Livermore, on Dec 5, 2019

Breaking news: President* Donald Trump retreated from the NATO conference this week because of all the mean, bad grown ups and it was no fun. In other news, local right-wing bloggers scramble to provide safe space for their snowflake idol by building a massive wall of talking points, outlandish claims, and self-awarded “owning” of libs. Stay tuned for further developments!

Donald Trump has no one to blame but himself for his troubles. He’s the poster child of poor decision making.

How're all you Trump haters portfolios doing?

Jobs: 266k created in November
Stock Market: Out of this world...
Unemploment: 3.5%. Lowest since 1969
Inflation: Flat

The Euro-losers and Canadiens (especially the Canadien Trudeau) reminded me of gossiping little school girls, pointing their fingers at the tom-boy rough-housing with the boys.

And you democrats look at them as LEADERS?

LOL!

Reagan Milhouse Lincoln...that's a good one, I like it. A better one would have been Ronald Dwight Lincoln...that would have captured three of the best. Ever wonder why there are no democrats on Mt. Rushmore, ya, nobody does.

LOL! Trump is single-handedly responsible for the state of the stock market? Interesting how he (and his supporters) quickly disavows any responsibility for it when the stock market goes down.

But if you want to play the "President is totally responsible for the stock market" game, FYI the average annual growth of the S&P 500 under Obama was 12.8%. The average annual growth of the S&P 500 under Trump has been 11.5% thus far. You can verify the numbers with any on-line S&P 500 calculator.

So, DKHSK, if you really want a President based solely on the performance of your investment portfolio, then you should have wished that Obama could have had a 3rd term.

As for the unemployment rate, it's been steadily dropping for about the past 10 years since the last recession. Trump entering office didn't change anything. Look at any timeline graph of the US unemployment rate for the last 10 years.

As for the growth of the US economy, Trump PROMISED that he could get the US GDP growth rate above 4%. He said that even 5% or 6% might be possible under his brilliant leadership. So what was the GDP growth rate for last year (2018) under Trump? (drum roll, please...............):
2.9%.
State of Trump's promise and boast to get the GDP growth above 4%?: FAIL.

Also, BTW, it looks like the average annual GDP growth rate thus far for 2019 is about 2.3%. Another FAIL.
(average of Q1 '19 rate of 3.1%, and Q2 '19 of 2.0%, and Q3 '19 advance estimate of 1.9%).

Oh, and these low GDP growth rates are despite the fact that Trump blew up the budget with a nearly 1 TRILLION dollar budget deficit fueled in large part by the Trump tax cuts which, as we have just seen, really didn't do much for the GDP growth rate after all.

Report of Canadien jobs being shed: Web Link

Summary: 71k jobs shed which is equivalent to 700k in the US.

Yeah, but their leaders are SOOOOOO good. <---- sarcasm.

@DKHSK

Thanks, DKHSK, but I’m retired from the navy. No more scrubbing down the deck guns, or studying naval strategies or naval tactics, or cleaning the decks of naval lint.

And, yes, we can both enjoy the great boost that our investment portfolios received due to the tripling of the S&P 500 during the eight years that Obama was President.

Ya, it's the Obama economy. My God, you really believe that? Do you wanna buy a bridge? The Obama economy...I have to stop, I fell out of my chair with laughter.
Obama spent 4 years blaming Bush and the next 4 years saying this was the "new normal" and now you think it was his policies that brought about this economic upturn. It was Trump who lowered the corporate tax that brought money back here and jobs. Like him or hate him is of no matter...his policies work.

Only a super-genius could possibly think of hiring this guy to be his personal attorney:

Interviewer: "What's the Ukraine trip all about?"
Giuliani (on telephone): "Well, I can't really describe it. I can't even confirm it."
Interviewer: "Are you in Ukraine also gathering evidence to support your own defense?"
Giuliani (on telephone): "I am not here to - Uh, I don't have to defend myself."

LOL!

Rudy Giuliani:

"The Accounts Chamber in Ukraine found an alleged misuse of $5.3B in U.S. funds during the Obama administration while Biden was “Point Man. Obama embassy urged Ukrainian police NOT to investigate!
Stay tuned to find out why."

Then...

"Shocking disclosure:
Much of the $5.3B in US Aid Ukraine reported as misused was given to the embassy’s favored NGO’s.
At the time Yovanovitch, witness for the Witchunt, was the Amb. That embassy directed the police not to investigate.
Wonder why Obama forgot Art. 2, Sec. 3."

Then...

"It comes as a huge shock to Democrats that @realDonaldTrump will ask for investigations concerning violations of US laws & misused hard-earned tax payer dollars.
It’s called his legal obligation under Article 2, Sec. 3 of the US Constitution. Ignored by Obama."


High level government officials of both parties have been ripping off the US Treasury year after year.

Trump is being impeached because he is EXPOSING IT ALL.

You Democrats are either totally ignorant to continue supporting impeachment or just stupid. You should WANT him to point out those officials who've been on the take. Trumps been hanging with our political fraudsters for years now. He knows their secrets. In their party circuit these politicians and bureaucrats laugh at your ignorance and stupidity while they tell their stories of foreign funds kick-backs and insider trading.

And for those of you who think I'm giving a pass to Republicans you can just whiff on by, they're in on it too!!

Yet here you are, hiding behind a facade of feigned outrage over quotes, grammatical errors and whatnot.

Silly.

You know, folks...Obama was a nice guy and popular, but not a very good president. Trump is pretty abrasive, by nature, but a pretty good president. I'm voting for Trump and I know that that doesn't mean much in Calif. but since I'm registered in Nevada then it might make a difference.

So I quote Giuliani in full and it’s not true.

Wombat only quotes a portion of Giuliani and it’s totes true.

You are like Cholo and I now will put you on ignore.

Bye.

Oh, I’m sorry DKHSK. I didn’t realize that you quoted Giuliani in full. In that case, the Giuliani statements that you quoted must of course be true.

Thanks for straightening me out on that.

Bo bergdahl Biden served too then served himself and his family by selling us out to ukraine through burisma. Quid pro quo joe has been selling out our country for his entire time in office. Obama gave how much in cash to Iran that they could use against us. Let's talk about rules of engagement from obama did you support this. The guy I support talks tough and stands by his words the guy you support sold out our military with his rules of engagement and more flexibility for russia. Wrong side of history billie bergdahl wrong side. Want me to go on I clean go all day and night. Love free speech love it. The left hates it. Hates it.
