      So, it seems as if Trump has fired Tillerson and is replacing him as Secretary of State with the current Chief of the CIA.

      What is even going on anymore?

      Sessions should be next.

        Media: "Why did you fire Rex"

        Trump: "We have been talking about this for a long time"

        Tillerson's aide: "Tillerson doesn't know why he was fired"

        *couple hours later that aide is fired*

He basically wants the threat disabled first as fast as possible (take the guns), then go into the process of dealing with the mentally ill subject because he thinks there are inefficiencies in the due process part (he's not wrong). This also seems to apply only to mentally ill people...? So, this probably explains the silence of Consevatives on this specific thing.

          However, that's not really his worst offense. Wanting to "ban assault rifles" and other stuff I talked about earlier is way more gay and essentially a betrayal.

          Funnily enough, even Fox News fell for the "take the guns first, due process second" thing (even said the same thing you did, basically), although I'm wondering if they made a correction. It was done by Tucker and tho flawed, he at least seems to want to honestly report the situations themselves and seems willing to self correct when wrong, although he's really shitty when just talking to people even if the others aren't better. Also don't like his partisanism, he took the SOTU address as Dems being an "opposition party." I mean, they did look saltier than the Pacific Ocean, but it's still stupid. *Sigh.* And he's the best guy on Fox, lol.
          People verified to be mentally ill? Mental illness isn't really a major cause of crime, particularly not murder. I'm assuming by mental illness you're not making a distinction between stuff like depression and psychosis, which are not primary motivators for murders like the kind happening in US highschools, and stuff like psychopathy, which is a mental disorder. The first kind is an 'illness' is a literal sense: it can develop at any point in a person's life, is treatable and not relatively long term. The second is a disorder that usually manifest from birth to the end of childhood, and is basically life-long: a peculiar way the brain is wired, like ADHD or Autism.

              Looking pretty good for the Dem house candidate in PA, Trump won that district by 20 points.

                Might be out of nowhere, but...

                Zeroextra, what is your opinion on the Trump Presidency so far...?

                You seem pretty interested in Politics shtuph, so I'm curious.

                  Three big takeaways here I think:

                  1) The Democrat campaigned against Nancy Pelosi and Democratic house leadership. Other dems running in competitive districts should take note that this is good practice. And the Democratic Party should take note that if Nancy Pelosi is that toxic in competitive districts, she probably shouldn't still be House Leader. The party's national reputation is suffering because of the stranglehold of old guard powerbrokers who can't bring themselves to relinquish power; a turnover of leadership to some young bloods and a changing of the guard would go miles towards cleaning up the party's image.

                  If the Dems retake the House in November, Pelosi should be voted out of the speakership and a new House Leader should be chosen. It would be a show of good faith to voters.

                  2) Further drives home what a fucking pathetic candidate Hillary was that in this very winnable district with plenty of Democratic voters--in the swingiest of swing states, no less--she couldn't even come within 20 points of the orange shitwizard.

                  3) ...in this very competitive district where the Democrats don't swing too far left and the Republicans have a sizable presence; there was no national Democrat who had enough crossover appeal to stump on the campaign trail. They didn't bring in Obama. They didn't bring in the Clinton's. They didn't bring in Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders. There was no national Democrat who they wanted to be seen campaigning with or who they believed would be well-received by undecided voters; no one they trusted to energize rather than turn off the farmers and the auto mechanics and the coal miners.

                  Except for one:



                  ...They brought in Joe Biden...

                  That's the guy they trusted to reach out to disillusioned Democrats and wavering Trump supporters. Hes the one they wanted to tap into the energy of the district.

                  DNC 2020 prep squad take note. Biden is legit.

                    Rural PA loves Joe, if the goal is to appeal to the working class next election then you could do worse. I still think they need to go younger.

                      I don't like where this is going. With this Stormy Daniels scandal (she is in violation of the agreement, btw,) and now several more women want to accuse Trump of making physical threats to them. lol. I highly doubt that. Besides, if you want to report a crime, try reporting it on the first day of opportunity, not 10 or 20 years later when nobody, not even yourself, remembers the facts.

                      See, this is an unconstitutional manner of personal attack. This is slander and libel, and for no obvious reason, they are allowed to spout their nonsense for months at a time.

                      According to the law, Trump has a right to face his accusers.

                      As the victim of a false police report and a slander/libel situation about 8 years ago, I don't buy any woman's testimony about what a man may or may not have done, without some sort of physical evidence or a video camera recording, and found out 6 women can all decide to make up some bullshit on a random day for no reason and file a police report against a man, just because they are jealous of him, or for no reason at all, just to get some laughs they'll do it.

                      This is drive-by media nonsense, and any Judge worth two shits ought to be putting gag orders on them, unless they can present some sort of physical, substantive evidence.

                        There was already a dozen or so prior him being elected. Trump is a scumbag who cheats on his wife repeatedly. Just accept it.

                        And yet he isn't suing them. We should hear their stories and see what evidence they have instead of immediately dismiss them.

                        Sure! Would love to see him go to court over it and face them.

                        Sure sure... because a group of 20+ women from across the country if not the world suddenly decided to risk their privacy, livelihood, and possibly their lives just to screw over Trump just for kicks. I'm sure you sing a different tune when it comes to Bill Clinton and his sexual allegations.

                        Any judge worth two shits needs to put a gag order on YOU and throw you in the looney bin. I swear, you are among the worse in these forums with your delusions.

                          "The Trump administration accused Russia on Thursday of engineering a series of cyberattacks that targeted American and European nuclear power plants and water and electric systems, and could have sabotaged or shut power plants off at will." -- https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/15/u...erattacks.html

                          Don Jr's wife is divorcing him after 12 years of marriage. She also hired a criminal defense attorney to handle her divorce. What a curious choice she made -- https://pagesix.com/2018/03/16/vanes...ld-jr-divorce/

                          McMasters (National Security Advisor) on the chopping block. There's mix reports about his currently employment but apparently Kelly has been pushing to get him removed anyway. https://www.politico.com/story/2018/...cmaster-467782


                          "The lawyer representing the adult film star Stormy Daniels alleges that some of the accusations she's making against President Donald Trump occurred while Trump was in office." --https://www.cnn.com/2018/03/16/politics/stormy-daniels-trump-allegations-cnntv/index.html

                          It is amazing how a porn star is causing this much trouble for the fricking PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. Just another sign of how fucked this administration is.

                          I hope the bombshell she has is every bit of the hype that article is painting it as.

                            I've just had another voice speak to me again, but I am going to wait a few days before I reveal what it said the first time.

                            This is what it said the second time.

                            "There is going to be a riot soon.

                            Trump: Despot

                            Hillary Clinton: Despot (worse)"

                            And the people rioting are worse.

                            The first thing that the voice spoke to me, I typed it out on here, and then I stopped, and I said to God, "Prove that to me ahead of time, and I'll write it." It is prophetic.

                            I'm giving the Voice of God 3 days to prove to me what was said, and I'll write it, but I want to make absolutely certain before I post what was said. I actually agree with the second half of it and can prove the second half, but I can't prove the first half, so I deleted it all until the Voice of God proves it to me.

                              Now the frst thing I'm talking about is not this. Regarding Trump, there is about to be some presidential powers used which have not been used in a very long time. For starters, he raised Tarrifs which i agree with, against most of the Cabinet's recommendations, but this time I agree with him.

                              But the lawlessness in this country has to stop somewhere, and you are about to see something legally executed that you didn't expect and I didn't expect.

                              I'm warning you, the constitution gives certain powers to the President and the Congress, but internet mega-corporations think they are the ones with the Constitutional Powers.

                              I'm warning you, when God verifies the thing that was just spoken to me, it is going to prove that I am a prophet and I am not out of my mind. In fact, truth be told, the only mental illness i have is induced from all the BS other people retaliated against me.

                                  So when your prophecy is proven false, will you then believe you are crazy and need medical attention?

                                    Sounds about the same as what the republicans said about Bill.

                                    It's all just drama, the porn star isn't actually causing much trouble with Trump's presidency. Trump is doing a better job of that.
