Is Xi the man dancing in the streets?
He will be if Trump & Kim complete the double by signing a final peace agreement ending the Korean War :-)

Now wouldn't that be something :-)


Will never happen. How do we know? Because Trumplethinskin is a sick, depraved, low IQ, compulsive liar. Not a single word of truth has ever left his mouth nor will any in the future. If he says he wants peace with the Norkors then we know for sure what he actually wants is war. Trump knows he is a worthless, yellow bellied coward. Of all his filthy sick impulses and twisted needs his top priority is to prove to himself and to the world that he is a tough guy, a manly man. Bush declared himself a war president and gleefully slaughtered millions of Iraqis. Trump's greatest yearning is to prove he is even tougher than Bush by murdering at least 10 times the number the war criminal Bush murdered.

All this hoohaw out of Trump's foul yap of late is just him setting up the scenario to facilitate the big lie that we all know is coming, the big BS excuse he's going to invent for invading N Korea. He's going to have to do something to make amends for destroying everything American and what better way is there to get on an American's good side than to tell them they don't have to use those boring cardboard targets anymore instead they can go to N Korea and blast away at something that runs and ducks and jumps around the way a cardboard target cannot. Yes, you know it's coming, that day when Trump will tweet that he is the greatest, the mightiest, the most savvy war president there ever was. Cuz that's how sick Toddler Tyrant is and you know it.

Welcome to the café, jglrogujgv :) I do hope I pronounced that correctly...

I also have the sneaky suspicion he's hoping to inspire unrest and revolution in Iran - now where have I heard that before - ohhhhhh yes ... the last time that was done... but unfortunately, it's easier to see why countries that feel threatened by the might of another country's "national-interests-just-not-in-their-own-backyard-but-someone-else's" do feel the need for a nuclear deterrent.

I share fdr's hopes, but my confidence is not high.

It's just as well our Prime Minister isn't as sensitive as your elected one is... The art of the curtsey.

"The knees should be virtually connected but hers are about 10 inches apart. How she didn't fall over, I don't know. I was trying it just now and I couldn't balance."

And do you know what? I'm ashamed to say that it made me laugh quite a lot more than a lot :(

I know. Because is it really news? And do I approve of judgemental points being made at the expense of something so trivial... No. But I still laughed. I'm going to blame it on that whale story I posted about a little while ago. It made me so sad, my brain clung onto some light relief... and poor Theresa was it.

edit: I've isolated it...

v--That --v

because I don't where it came from.

Consigliere in custody pleads guilty. Will he sing like a bird in a cage?
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/21/nyregion/michael-cohen-plea-deal-trump.html wrote:
Michael D. Cohen, President Trump’s former fixer, pleaded guilty on Tuesday to campaign finance and other charges, making the extraordinary admission that he paid a pornographic actress during the 2016 presidential campaign to secure her silence about an affair she said she had with Mr. Trump.

Mr. Cohen also pleaded guilty to multiple counts of bank and tax fraud, bringing to a close a monthslong investigation by Manhattan federal prosecutors who examined his personal business dealings and his role in helping to arrange financial deals with women connected to Mr. Trump.

Mr. Cohen, dressed in a dark suit and a yellow tie, entered the courtroom in United States District Court in Manhattan at about 4 p.m., nodded his head at reporters and smiled.

The plea agreement does not call for Mr. Cohen to cooperate with federal prosecutors in Manhattan, but it does not preclude him from providing information to the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, who is examining the Trump campaign’s possible involvement in Russia’s interference in the 2016 campaign.

If Mr. Cohen were to substantially assist the special counsel’s investigation, Mr. Mueller could recommend a reduction in his sentence.

The guilty plea could represent a pivotal moment in the investigation into the president: a once-loyal aide acknowledging that he made payments to at least one woman who said she had an affair with Mr. Trump, in violation of federal campaign finance law.
...
Mr. Cohen’s plea agreement comes slightly more than a month after he gave an interview to George Stephanopoulos on ABC News and said he would put “his family and country first” if prosecutors offered him leniency in exchange for incriminating information on Mr. Trump.

Paul Manafort found guilty on eight counts
President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort has been found guilty on eight counts of financial crimes, a major victory for special counsel Robert Mueller.
But jurors were unable to reach a verdict on 10 charges, and Judge T.S. Ellis declared a mistrial on those counts.
Manafort was found guilty of five tax fraud charges, one charge of hiding foreign bank accounts and two counts of bank fraud.
He was charged with 18 counts of tax evasion, bank fraud and hiding foreign bank accounts in the first case Mueller brought to trial as part of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US election.

On another happy note Paul Manafort found guilty on eight counts.

Now one of the jurors reveals Manafort would have been found guilty on all counts except for 1 juror. Prosecutors will most certainly request and receive a re-trial on the 10 charges. Will they wait until after Manny's crime boss pardons him on the grounds that he's a good fella loyal to the crime family? Or wiill they wait until after he's found quilty on the charges that have not yet gone to trial?

Another poignant reveal from that juror... several of the jurors are loyal Trumplings but they had no trouble putting partisan politics aside in order to uphold the law and find Manafort guilty.

He's off to another trial next month, Paul Manafort’s trial in D.C. to take 3 weeks, probe Ukraine lobbying world

IIRC the prosecution has something like 90 days to request the retrial. They have time to play a waiting game and watch him make some more turns on the spit. He must firmly believe rump is going to pardon, but I suspect rump would have to ask Ryan if if would survive if he did. That answer might not be to Manafort's liking.

When asked whether the White House was considering regulating Google, Trump's economics advisor Larry Kudlow told journalists "we're taking a look at it", reported the Washington Post
He should pop into Seti main & complain about malicious & personal attacks :-)

Oh well...

Back to the old days?

The EU will have to take to strip searching, including electronic devices the UK terrorists before they allow them in and then make them buy EU insurance so the EU is protected. What did you all expect anyway?
