The Trump Presidency : Year III Login/Join

I'm glad President Trump told the snobby British ambassador that he couldn't work w him.

The messages that Kim Darroch sent were more than "emails"; they were secret cables including ones to Mark Sedwill (UK National Security Advisor).

Darroch comments included:

Warns that Trump could have been indebted to 'dodgy Russians' ;

Claims the President's economic policies could wreck the world trade system;

Says the scandal-hit Presidency could 'crash and burn' and that 'we could be at the beginning of a downward spiral... that leads to disgrace and downfall';

Voices fears that Trump could still attack Iran.

He also says that he doesn't think Trump's White House will 'ever look competent'.

And referring to allegations of collusion between the Trump camp and Russia – since largely disproved – the memo says: 'The worst cannot be ruled out.'

In the confidential memo – marked 'Official Sensitive' – the UK's most important diplomat accused Trump of 'radiating insecurity', filling his speeches with 'false claims and invented statistics' and achieving 'almost nothing' in terms of domestic policy .

But while Trump was making waves on the world stage, his domestic programme was getting nowhere, Sir Kim said.

The President's big election pledges – building a wall between the US and Mexico; stopping Muslims from certain countries coming to America and reforming tax and healthcare – had all hit the buffers.

buffers = activist obama appointed judges

He highlighted how the Administration had been 'dogged from day one by stories of vicious infighting and chaos inside the White House, and swamped by scandals – all, one way or another, linked to Russia .'

and while a lot is still being kept secret, it is very likely parts of the UK govt were active in the conspiracy to stop Donald Trump from becoming President


Darroch sounds exactly like an elitist far left radical DEM intent on stopping the Trump agenda

Right now the Brits are worried about what comes out of Barr’s investigation, they are neck deep in this pile of shit, and will not look good if this gets known to the American public. I do not look at the British Government as our “friends”, I’m sure the President knows how far to trust them.

if I recall, didn't the Chief of British Intelligence abruptly resign the day after Donald Trump was elected President?

like he knew that eventually the shit was going to hit the fan and it was better to separate himself from the office and try to hide somewhere

Yep, he was the head of their GCHQ, basically like our NSA, and was considered an up and comer in the Government.knew his fingerprints were all over this and figured getting out now before Trump uncovered all of this plan and who was guilty.

Just sounds like a typical Never-Trumper self-reporting. You know, Trump has had no success and never will because "orange man."

Little domestic policy success? My stars.

I must admit, the British look like they lack basic confidence in themselves with how they're handling Brexit.

Could it be that their perceptions of what leadership is like skewed along the way?

This all sounds to me like Sir What's-His-Name got his knickers in a bunch over some perceived personal slight by the President and pouted in his cables. Trump being not in proper form, and all that.

Alex Morgan gets praised for her “sipping tea with pinky finger up” antic after she scored a goal against England at the Women’s World Cup soccer tourney, but Trump gets blasted for telling the Brit ambassador to USA to “pound sand” after communication cables get released.

I guess it’s all about whose ox got gored and by whom, eh wot!?

Is there a list of all the fallen critics of Donald Trump?

All the FBI people unemployed because they hated Trump. Megan Kelly she was famous once.

Trump to announce executive action on census citizenship question
BY JORDAN FABIAN AND BRETT SAMUELS - 07/11/19 08:46 AM EDT

====================

..................."Trump tweeted that he will hold a news conference in the afternoon “on the Census and Citizenship.”

White House officials declined to discuss the content of the executive action, but said it may not be a full-blown executive order.

Trump has hinted in recent days that he may use an executive order to force the inclusion of a citizenship question on census forms following the high court’s decision in late June.

But any executive action taken by Trump is likely to be met with another round of legal challenges.

The administration’s effort to add a citizenship question has been the subject of a months-long legal battle that has often caused confusion......................."

HighZonie,
What is with these bogus links?

The below shows up as an outlook ad. An earlier one showed up as a recipe for yummy potatoes or something like that. Curious...

Sorry about that - I had too many pages open and accidentally copied the link to the wrong page. Fixed the original post now.

Thanks HRK for stepping in to help while I was away.
