25 Times Trump Has Been Dangerously Hawkish On Russia

(This is where Davey (If he bothers to read both stories) will say, "I never said CNN was the "be all end all" Trump-Russia source." Because Caitlin fucking nails it!!!!!)

If there was another BCBer who backed me up from time to time I might be looser with my terminology. But on this board it seems like I'm always alone so I need to be careful to source my words to show you I am not talking out of my ass. I need to show there are other humans who share my opinions or from whom I get ideas. Oddly none of those guys or gals seem to like music like we do. Nonetheless, they are my sources, my inspiration, my back ups, fellow travelers, etc.


Of course there are other humans who share your opinions but this is a small sample of humanity. I do believe that I understand your point.

Question .. Were you on the original Classic Rock Forums when Dwight ran the board? CRF had an "hidden" political discussion forum for a while and things would get pretty heated. One of the posters was called NewDawnFades or Dawnie by some of us. Dawnie's opinions were the polar opposite of my opinions concerning GWB. He would often come after me, demanding for me to show my "sources" and I would provide links to articles but the "sources" were never up to his satisfaction. I recall at one of my "sources" was no good because it was from the WSJ, another from the NYTimes, one was from a Canadian writer, etc.

I just stopped posting political comments because it wasn't worth it for me. I am not saying in any way that you should stop posting about what you feel, know or think but that posting about politics will always be heated and everyone will read things that they feel are wrong, illogical or just plain dumb. No one can change my mind about Trump. I hate him to my very core. He could give his fortune to protect animals and save the planet and I would still not trust him.

People will believe what they want to believe. You know that some people just like to stir the pot, you do it yourself. The trick is not to allow it to get to you.

Post to please yourself. I doubt if you're alone. You are allowing people to jerk your chain. Peace.

Oh, I think that chain-jerking definitely goes both ways. And I do think there's times it's deliberate trolling to get a response, which I'm always happy to provide. If I weren't, I'd ignore him. There are folks here I ignore.

And as I've said before, I don't have a personal issue with Jimbo - I'd love to have a drink with him some time and tell him he's full of shit in person. :D

Hell, I tell my best friends they're full of shit when I think they're full of shit.

No, on BCB I am alone. I have been staggered by that since 9/11 and now with Russia-gate and even now-er, Ukrainegate. Yes, BCB is a small pond but usually if you see one carp there's another one or two somewhere near by. But on BCB, noooooo.

No matter, we are just jousting with words here and I think I am getting better and better at it. Not good enough to get another BCBer on my side but someday I will. :D

Looks like the Dem's dream President Mike Pence may be realer than you think. Trump's gone to the hospital with chest pains.

Jimmy Dore said the Dem's case is so weak it makes Republicans into Clarence Darrows.

I see Jordan as the Republican 2024 presidential candidate. In fact I am impressed with how not-Trumpian the Republicans are. They're pretty sharp people. Maybe I need to watch more C Span.

Schiff's closer was awesome. Trump is a fool, a boor, a fumbler, so not a professional.

I'm so confused. :?

That Volker is a warmonger. Hates Russia! Meanwhile, not mentioned when praising scrappy Ukraine's anti-Russia stance is that at this moment Zelenskiy, whom I like, is in peace talks with Russia. Volker is calling for more arms and more war.

If Jim Jordan keeps getting his ass handed to him, he's going to need a bigger chair.

Yeah, like you know what's going on. Go ahead. Do tell.

You know how Google works. The Hill promised to review all his horse-shit in light of the testimony given under oath.
They’ve changed his status so that his work is clearly marked as opinion.
You think maybe we’ll see John Solomon under oath? No, he’ll be shoveling the horse shit to FOX & Nunes & my pal Jimbo.
That’s John Solomon’s business & business is good.

Sondland is coming across as awfully flip for a congressional hearing. Fucking amateur hour at the Trump administration, as usual.

Seems like he's not doing his boss any favors at all, either.

In fact, Nunes looks worried as all get-out going into the recess before his questioning.

you've got to admit that Nunes looks good in his suit from "The Little Caesar Collection".
too bad House rules won't permit him to chomp on a cigar.

If Pompeo, Pence or the Donald himself would speak under oath we'd all be more certain of what really happened. The fact that they are withholding testimony and evidence says a lot.
