It's really exciting.

I assume there's enough evidence now for him to go down, so he's looking to save his own skin.

Keep it in your pants O ye of the anti-TRUMP cabal:

Michael Flynn did not initially reveal income from Russia-related entities on his personal financial disclosure

Michael Flynn Failed to Disclose Income From Russia-Linked Entities

A good video explanation of the FLynn issue:

The Media’s Obsession With Michael Flynn

The stark division that is playing out in every corner of politics right now is on full display in the main stream media's coverage of the Mike Flynn Russia investigations.

The media's coverage of the Flynn news is "breathless" and top Democrat leaders are wasting no time using the Flynn developments to fuel more speculation against President Trump.

All of a sudden, everyone in Washington is an investigative reporter.

Taiwanese travelers to the U.S. could face "extreme vetting"; Measures likely to apply to visitors from 38 visa waiver countries

Wouldn't this require hiring a whole bunch of bottom inspectors security staff at airports and whatnot? There'd be hordes of them. And you'd have to vet them first to make sure they're not Enemies of the State. Perhaps there will be an exam:

1) Imagine you have a latex glove and three Muslims. Describe correct security screening procedure on one (1) page of A4.
2) Write a short essay on your favorite Rush Limbaugh polemic. You may ask the test administrator to help with long words.
3) Environmentalists: is the death penalty too good for them? Discuss.

And in the interest of accuracy and actual facts - here is the complete referenced article:
TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Citizens of 38 countries including Taiwan could have to hand over social-media passwords and face questions about their ideology upon arrival in the United States if the Trump Administration has its way, reports said Wednesday.

The measure is being considered by senior officials in the government of President Donald Trump and would apply to visitors from many countries that have visa waivers for the U.S., according to a report by the Wall Street Journal.

Customs officials could ask arrivals to hand over their smartphones to check them for stored contacts, while they would also request social-media handles and passwords in order to review privately posted information.

Critics say the measure might quickly lose its effect since visitors with something to hide will either delete all the relevant information or buy a separate burner phone before traveling to the U.S.

A second measure considered by Trump Administration officials is an ideological test, with questions about the visitor’s opinions on the role of women in society, honor killings, and legitimate targets in military operations, according to the Wall Street Journal article by Laura Meckler.

The list of countries whose citizens could face “extreme vetting” also included Japan, Germany, France and Great Britain.

Foreign visitors applying for visas to the U.S. would also face more questions about their intentions and beliefs, which could lead to more work for embassy employees overseas, reports said.

I love the "PREMIUM SCREENING" line.

Any chance of an upgrade to premium? :lol:

And despite everything, he'll quite likely get re-elected in 2020. So this thread can have another 7 1/2 years of life.

Might be time to dump Facebook until 2025.

Anti-president Trump

Postby Winston Smith » Thu Aug 31, 2017 20:56

I like Donald Trump as president and wish him many more years in office. He's completely fucking up the job of president, which is primarily to serve the special interests who paid for his or her election and to buy votes by keeping the troughs full with other people's money, so as long as he's in office I'm relatively safe from the usual presidential mischief.

Now the Republicans and their donors have got the tax hand-out they always wanted, there is no reason for them to support Trump. The tax cuts are already unpopular, but what happens when the poorer Trump voters see how little they are gaining and how many benefits they are going to lose as the govt. tries to balance the books? They may finally realise that they've been conned and look for someone to blame for their situation and decisions other than immigrants, liberals, homosexuals etc.

If this makes the Republicans unelectable and all the new voters that Trump brought in desert him, then he becomes the perfect scape goat for the Republican old guard.
