i've linked a fair number of his articles, fitting them into existing threads haphazardly.  from now on, i think it will be better to place them in their own thread.

What is poignant is the dispair and turmoil the world was in after WW 1.   Sounds like today.

Pence would probably be worse because he would probably actually get crap done.

it's a good thing that european countries view america as unreliable? you realize that this statement was made because trump refuses to stand behind article 5, right?

I don't believe the context was offered concretely, in either sys' link or links contained therein.

Unreliable compared to whom?  What else is out there?  What kind of reliability do they need? Or want? What would a reliable partner stand to gain from Europe?

No, they need to start spending the required amount of money to protect themselves. We constantly complain about how much we spend on defense of the rest of the world.

Michael Isikioff of Yahoo News reported that four top D.C. lawyers had refused to handle Trump’s defense.
...
Isikoff’s reporting suggests that a lifelong habit of skipping out on bills has saddled Trump with an attorney ill-prepared for the task ahead.

He's such a goddamn dipshit.

Some days zero. Some days five times. Usually two or three. Here's the thing. With Trump, there's just ALWAYS some sensational news (fake if you prefer) to post here. Every time I look, there's something to post.
