  2. And THAT is what this is all about. These State Department cretins think they run the country. And I'm sure they're used to presidents yielding to the ol' "this is how we do it around here" nonsense. Unfortunately for them, and as you stated, THE PRESIDENT decides how it gets done. They can take a hike if they don't like it.

    And this: Trump's reaction to the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller: "This is the end of my presidency, I'm fucked."

    Is that wishful thinking or do you want to make it 0 for 37?

    The president can't solicit bribery and extort other countries using US resources for personal gain.

    That's against the law

    When he first took office he intimated that he was going to do that, but he never actually did it.
    I thought it was a mistake and I e-mailed him and told him, not long after, that he should fire every one in the bureaucracy who had been added under Obama. He didn't follow my advice. This is what he gets for not following my advice.

    This is THE critical observation. As we watch posters who adopt the precise terms - verbatim - that DNC HQ has disseminated to the hive, we understand how unserious and uncritical these posters are. Drones...being useful to the hive. That is all.
