Trump is an African at heart!? Even the press are having their freedom curtailed!
--- For those concerned about press freedom, the first months of the Trump administration have been troubling. Journalists have been yelled at, pepper-sprayed, pinned by security and even arrested on the job. Now, one reporter has accused a Republican candidate of assault--

Trump is a dangerous person. He has the US nuclear codes, and he's unstable, autocratic, vindictive and reckless. His presence in the White House should concern every single person on earth because of the enormous power his office wields.

I believe, this is d secret to Trump's nine lives:
“You know in Israel all the people like us — the media hate us but the people love us , ” Sara Netanyahu told the Trumps as they met . “ Like you . ”
“We have a lot in common , ” President Trump replied .

Trump is at it again, alienating allies;
German officials — who say that the United States remains Germany ’ s most important international ally and an important partner whose friendship they want to maintain — feel that Trump has prioritized relations with authoritarian nations such as Saudi Arabia instead of democratic allies. Many were shocked when Trump declared in Riyadh that “ we are not here to lecture ” the mostly unelected assembled leaders — and then blasted European allies in Brussels
for not spending enough on defense.

When d true king abdicates from his throne, d pretender becomes d king! Trump goes to new depths;
In ditching the Paris accord on climate change , President Trump has cemented his reputation as the international disrupter in chief with the latest in a string of decisions that foreign policy analysts believe could have profound consequences for U . S . global leadership.

Who's gonna stand with them?

Imagine a situation where dissidents of an autocratic regime have no where to run to?!
One of the privileges of my job is the chance to meet with some of the world’ s bravest people: dissidents , exiles, relatives of political prisoners who come through Washington from every corner of the world, looking for support in their battles against dictators of every stripe .
Lately , though, there’ s been something different about these visits.
It used to be that The Post was a stop they made before or after the main event , which would be a meeting with administration officials. Since Donald Trump’ s inauguration , that has changed . The State Department , where virtually every important office remains unfilled , is a vacuum . The White House often seems on the side of the oppressors , not the oppressed .

Trump, truly is desecrating American political and moral values! When d president of d nation that is supposed to defend of democracy, now tries to influence d direction of investigations into d cupability of his inner circle in an election interference probe, by d foremost law enforcement agency.
Threatening d job of d head of that agency, to get him to soft pedal on any investigation. I'm hoping their checks n balances wont let him get away with such rampart disregard for unspoken gentlemen's rules!
|Re: Trump's Destruction Of Democratic Values by ashjay001(m): 3:05am On Jun 09, 2017|
This is my opinion on d Trump Russian Saga:
But let’ s be clear on what Comey is alleging . Comey is claiming that Trump explicitly sought to convert one of the leading law enforcement officials in the country into a personal loyalist . Comey is claiming that Trump demanded , seemingly as a condition for his continued employment , that he voluntarily shed his position ’ s institutional independence . And Comey is claiming that , after having done all this , Trump told Comey that he “hoped ” he would drop the FBI probe into Flynn ’ s conduct. Comey took this presidential effort as an “order , ” which would plainly constitute overt interference in an ongoing FBI investigation into his former national security adviser ’ s ties to a foreign power that — according to the widely held conclusion of the intelligence community — tried to sabotage our election, in order to tip it to Trump .
The only way Republicans can continue to claim this constitutes “exoneration ” is to also hold the position that none of the above is cause for concern . Yesterday , Lawfare’ s Benjamin Wittes had this to say about the meaning of Comey’ s written testimony :
Comey is describing here conduct that a society committed to the rule of law simply cannot accept in a president … this document is about a far more important question to the preservation of liberty in a society based on legal norms and rules: the abuse of the core functions of the presidency . It’ s about whether we can trust the President — not the President in the abstract , but the particular embodiment of the presidency in the person of Donald J . Trump — to supervise the law enforcement apparatus of the United States in fashion consistent with his oath of office . I challenge anyone to read this document and come away with a confidently affirmative answer to that question

But, here is why, he has been confusing critics and pollsters, from d primaries to d present day?!
Some kolo people, just wont give up on him!:
What Trump ’ s supporters also appreciate about him are the very attributes for which he is relentlessly criticised in the media . People here — a farming community supplemented by modest - paying retail jobs and a few factory opportunities — are frank and plain-spoken. They ’ re weary of politicians whose every statement seems carefully crafted to say nothing and offend no one .
|Re: Trump's Destruction Of Democratic Values by Duru1(m): 3:19am On Jun 09, 2017|
What do you know about democracy talk less of democratic values? Who the hell adjudged that democracy is the best system of government? Most communist countries achieved the same developmental feat as democratic countries. Sometimes it is a borderline idiocy to talk about the good or bad system of government. Whatever system of government that suits certain people and helps them achieve development, I say so be it. You seem to get your silly information from uneducated source.

Chai!? If u no fit sleep, na me cause am? Wey u just dey para with ur hypocrisy!?!
Is achieving development comparable to human rights?!
what do u know
U cant even state ur case without resulting to implied insults? Shows d depth of ur intelligence or maturityor even self-anointed knowledge.
Even democracy violates human rights and freedoms, yet compared to any other system of govt, its d most favourable in all indices of succesful development!? All other forms of development successful Govt have an oppressed society; China, Russia; mention one that doesnt? Berger u!? Mtcheeee.....
|Re: Trump's Destruction Of Democratic Values by Duru1(m): 4:26am On Jun 09, 2017|
Are you this slow? What is human right without social and economic development. I guess you realized that your so-called human right does not exist in the jungle, Most Nigerians always show naiveté in any form of discourse. I beg you to tell me which so-called democratic governments allow their citizens to run wild in the name of preservation of human rights? Freedom is liberty to do within law. Whether in China, Russia, USA, France or UK, you must obey the law of the land or face the music.
|Re: Trump's Destruction Of Democratic Values by ashjay001(m): 4:43am On Jun 09, 2017|
Can u just shut d ferk up n go back to sleep?! U must just display ur crass ignorance for all to admire. I'm sure in real life, u carry ur pompous self about as a knowledgeable fellow!?
What is d essence of social n economic development, without ur basic human freedoms? Of speech, of association?
Everyday, u see uprisings, d masses living in ur acclaimed socially n economically developed societies, trying to break d shackles of oppression/authoritarian rules. D Arab uprising(from Tunisia to Syria), a case in point!
How do u beget a civilised developed society, without human rights?! Are U living in d jungle?!
Until u're on d receiving end, u will never get it!
|Re: Trump's Destruction Of Democratic Values by ashjay001(m): 4:55am On Jun 09, 2017|
U're ipob, I'm sure. Now, imagine ur secessionist agenda coming up in present day China or Russia? Would it even have had half d chance its been getting? Tiananmen square(China) comes to mind, in Russia, dissidents like Kanu are assassinated, sharperly! Protesters are summarily dispersed with deadly force, and nobody stands up to d state!? Is that the kind of development u wish for?!
If u cant mention any successful communist, socialist or fully undemocratic state, without an oppressed populace, then, pls, spare me d mentions!
|Re: Trump's Destruction Of Democratic Values by ashjay001(m): 10:09am On Jun 09, 2017|
Well, u seem to be d slow one!? U're claiming democracy is overhyped, which I'm refuting. In France, USA, UK n a host of democratic climes, u can decide to request a referendum, or even bash d sitting govt as much as u like, n u get away with!? But, in Russia or China or Cuba or North Korea or Saudi Arabia, u seek a referendum or bash d govt, at ur peril!? And, Humans, thru history, no matter how good(socially n economically) they have it, prefer to have a say in how they are being governed.
But, seems, u dont even know where u stand or what u're trying to advocate. See, I don get migraine trying to understand where u stand n what u stand for, exactly. Make I rest.

Trump and controversies, be like.....
If a federal judge allows the case to proceed , Racine and Frosh say, one of the first steps will be to demand through the discovery process copies of Trump’ s personal tax returns to gauge the extent of his foreign business dealings . That fight would most likely end up before the Supreme Court , the two said , with Trump’ s attorneys having to defend why the returns should remain private.
“This case is , at its core , about the right of Marylanders , residents of the District of Columbia and all Americans to have honest government , ” Frosh said . To fully know the extent of Trump ’ s constitutional violations “ we ’ ll need to see his financial records , his taxes that he has refused to release . ”
Racine said he felt obligated to sue Trump in part because the Republican - controlled Congress has not taken the president ’ s apparent conflicts seriously.
“We ’ re getting in here to be the check and balance that it appears Congress is unwilling to be , ” he said .
|Re: Trump's Destruction Of Democratic Values by ashjay001(m): 12:13pm On Jun 15, 2017|
With the way things are going, I expect Trump to pull a 'saraki*'!
saraki*- winning, even when the odds seem insurmountable!
The special counsel overseeing the investigation into Russia ’ s role in the 2016 election is interviewing senior intelligence officials as part of a widening probe that now includes an examination of whether President Trump attempted to obstruct justice, officials said .
The move by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III to investigate Trump’ s conduct marks a major turning point in the nearly year- old FBI investigation , which until recently focused on Russian meddling during the presidential campaign and on whether there was any coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. Investigators have also been looking for any evidence of possible financial crimes among Trump associates , officials said .

Trump now d butts of jokes from other world leaders!
“In the private conversations I ’ ve had with heads of states and ministers of foreign relations . . . they all feel what Turnbull just basically came out and said : This is , by far , the least capable person ever to sit in the office and it’ s appalling they have to deal with him , ” said Ian Bremmer, president of Eurasia Group , a global risk- assessment firm. “ Even in a country that really needs to have a good relationship with the United States , you ’ re just not willing to deal with it. Your own ego will say , ‘ Screw this guy . ’ ”
White House officials did not respond to a request for comment.
|Re: Trump's Destruction Of Democratic Values by mandarin: 2:15pm On Jun 16, 2017|
I see that alot of sources provided as backing for stories here are actually democrats leaning media. Try and learn to balance what you listen to or watch.
The media in USA is the 4th arm of government shaping opinions, governance etc but Trump isn't just finding good relationships with the key leftist media that not only pretend to promote democracy but also same sex marriages, free society etc.
Lets face it, Trump is a free thinker but lean right toward conservative while Mike Pence a rightist, pro life Christian, the leaders of a free world of man without control or divine direction are at war with their ideology and so, its a war between left and right in American politics not just about Trump alone.
The promoters of a free world led by CNN, New York Times ,WSJ, Washington Post , ABC, NBC etc are not at ease with Trump's style and are obviously working at bringing him down.
Now, these are the issues:
Trump is pro American, European don't like that, Chinese don't like that, Mexicans don't like that etc
Trump is pro Christianity, Middle East brothers don't like that and the agreement of all these ate going to give him tough times.
About Comey, I listened to his testimony and that of Jeff Session, though I can't judge but that Trump broke a regulation was a subjective judgment of the FBI director and I feel there are going to be multiple legal interpretation to what President Trump said " I hope you can see, I hope you can let Flynn go" doesn't look like a command to me but may be it is but lawyers will work on that.
If you ask me in my honest opinion, I will say the whole saga is destroying America itself. Even if Democrat wins next election the president better be clean!
Secondly, I think impeaching trump won't be easy, since CNN and the likes failed in their sampling and poll results prior to the election I no longer trust them and can ask question about their sampling. Also, I believe in the spirit of fairness so that when doing your analysis, you bring parties together for and against and then you can allow the public form their perspectives but I feel they are trying to create a perspective for the public.
So what next, I feel Trump will scale through and win a reelection, he's already using twitter to bypass the mainstream media and his followers may just see the blockade of his policies as anti America.But what do I know!
|Re: Trump's Destruction Of Democratic Values by feelgoodInc: 3:51pm On Jun 16, 2017|
is it not possible that you guys are listening to fake news? CNN
Attorney Jeff sessions started the inquiry with these words that "There is no Russia collusion" so that's it. ow you guys have changed from Russia story now to Trump trying to stop an investigation, why are you guys always on the loosing side? ask yourself these question. 8 months into the Russian investigation and there's no evidence that he colluded with Russia.
|Re: Trump's Destruction Of Democratic Values by ashjay001(m): 7:59am On Jun 21, 2017|
No evidence ke? If there are no evidence, why then did they start an investigation? Why did trump dismiss d FBI director, after being unsuccessful in manipulating him?
Oga, as long as i'm right, who cares if I loose? We can only be grateful, that he seems to have started realising d folly of his former ways and he's taming down his rhetoric.
|Re: Trump's Destruction Of Democratic Values by ashjay001(m): 8:04am On Jun 21, 2017|
And as d commenter above implied, trump cant loose! The American pple seems to have been infiltrated by kanu n his goons
BROOKHAVEN, Ga . — President Trump’ s hopes of steadying his presidency and his agenda on Capitol Hill were given a lift Tuesday when a Republican won a special congressional election in the Atlanta suburbs.
Republican Karen Handel defeated Democrat Jon Ossoff in Georgia’ s 6 th Congressional District , retaining a seat that has been in GOP hands since 1979 after a grueling , four -month campaign that earned the distinction of being the most expensive House race in history.
Handel won by almost 11 , 000 votes and by more than four percentage points , and Ossoff failed to reach the 48 percent mark that he topped in the initial round of voting in April.
Handel ’ s win will bring fresh attention to a beleaguered Democratic Party that has suffered a string of defeats in special elections this year despite an angry and engaged base of voters who dislike Trump.
|Re: Trump's Destruction Of Democratic Values by feelgoodInc: 8:10am On Jun 21, 2017|
ashjay001:this is total crap, when Obama came in he sacked the head of FBI, So why can't Trump sack the head of FBI.
James comey said Trump wasn't under any investigation.
all what you put up here is fake news, you think because there aren't Democrats that they are not democratic?.
the attorney general said
I'll leave you with this message you're only a Democrat till you get a job, when you get a real job that's when you know it's not easy being a democrat.
|Re: Trump's Destruction Of Democratic Values by feelgoodInc: 8:12am On Jun 21, 2017|
lol have you noticed there aren't talking about Trump Russia again? you loose again.
Trump always wins hate him or not.
I think seen should close this thread, your Trump Russia narrative is now fake news hahahaha,
With the hatred they have about Trump, if there was any evidence they would have leaked it to the press.
