    Every time trump says, The like you have never seen before, I think of the Baldrick the servant from Black Adder a british comedy series who also says, I have a cunning plan.

        I think the mysterious Christmas gift that Korea promised Trump was the name of this leader he could assassinate.

            Stephen’s Dubya voice is excellent! I love it. Much as Bush Jr wasn’t a great president, he makes trump look really dumb and I liked Bush’s Texas accent. Lol

              I always had an issue accepting the arguments against democracy made by Plato, Aristotle, and Socrates, but after what Trump has done to what I thought was a stable representative democracy, i'm convinced Trump somehow provided a better case against democracy than they ever could have. Now that's ironic.

                As someone who classified a lot of Top Secret intelligence in my life, I can say that the source and methods MUST be protected... but that the substance MUST be more definitive then vague assurances, and sometimes it can be hard to figure out how to But I think we could prove that the President is lying or there was a real credible and imminent threat just by asking 3 questions....

                What did the CRITIC report state?
                There WAS a CRITIC report right?
                Can you prove a CRITIC report was sent?

                There would HAVE to be a CRITIC report that was issued if the president is telling the truth and was responding to an imminent threat that his intelligence sources made him aware of. There would be no CRITIC report if he was lying, and simply taking his own "initiative" to assassinate a foreign official. We don't even have to read the report, just verify that one was sent around the time of Soleimani's assassination.

                              You should start calling the tarrifs by what they actually are: a tax increase on American consumers to offset the massive give away for the rich.

                                  Don't criticize Israel. Would Israeli intelligence (magical source) have anything to do with the Soleimani assassination? Who pull Trump's puppet strings?

                                                There ARE sensible republicans in office still, thank God. It’s been infuriating to hear these people continuously defend Trumps action, actions that not only affect us Americans but them as well but for some reason trump is the hill they’re willing to die climbing up for. He’s not worth it, thank you Senator Lee!

Gotten medical insurance for the entire country.  Instead he wasted it on more antiquated military that hasn't won a war in 70 years. Just another vehicle make the rich richer and stick it to the Middle class.  What Republicans see as a big wins are the things that are destroying the country

I hope you are strong enough to hold the line--don't let a crack blemish the Constitution because once a crack sets it cannot be stopped. You are Congress, not a Trump groupie and I hope you'll uphold your duty in the 3rd branch of gov't.
