i member. before the food poisoning and assassination attempts, when they were first buying up the town, someone telling me how horrible it was that these poor townies were being overrun.

real rajneeshism hasn't been tried yet


That’s what advocates of all the failed socialistic personality/ideology cults say instead of acknowledging the reality that  they are inherently dehumanizing, exploitive and repressive and ultimately they fail.  I put Rajneeshism  in the same category as Scientology, Moonism, The Peoples Temple and Post Modernism.

Hmmm, but it somewhat misses the point of AT&T (And the others) paying Cohen in the first place. Cohen (who is still on the Trump payroll and has business cards with "Counsel to DJ Trump".) obviously made it apparent he could sway Trump's opinion, and sought to make his status (even if only in his mind) as the gatekeeper to Trump.

It's hardly likely he dreamed up that position since Trump took office, they go back several years, and have had many 'deals' under their collective belts. So why did he need to secure loans (on the equity of his and his in laws homes) when he had over 2 million deposited in the same account he used to pay Stormy Daniels? Why did Trump pay him back his 130K hush money payment in installments? Trump couldn't afford 130K in one go? What are they hiding?

And as for draining the swamp? Lol.. Of course, he just has his own swamplife in his very own swamp. See Kushner, Pruitt, Mnuchen, Price, Etc etc...

What does any of this have to do with collusion with Russia?

During the first episode of Picasso on NATGEO I noticed that Antonio Banderas as the older Picasso bore a striking resemblance to Adolf Hitler sans mustache and wondered if others saw the resemblance.  Sure enough:

That's a remarkably kind denouement!

Meanwhile:

“I think that this further proves that the President is not going to be influenced by special interests,” Sanders said. “This is actually the definition of draining the swamp, something the president talked about repeatedly during the campaign. For anything beyond that I would direct you to the president’s outside counsel.”

She added that possible merger shows Trump would not be “influenced by any outside special interests.”

Later in the press briefing when pressed on Cohen’s payments, Sanders said Trump would “do what he finds in the best interest of Americans across the country.”

AT&T paid $600,000 to Cohen’s company, Essential Consultants, to advise on the potential merger. Trump has pushed back against the merger, and the Justice Department filed an antitrust lawsuit in an attempt to block it.

Yeah, well I thought about working in something about his mother, but it being Mother’s Day and all...

I live in California...for someone who has been here five minutes you didn't know that? My word! 

As for being disinformation; Well, if you want to believe that, go ahead. I doubt Trump or Cohen does.  ;D  AT&T certainly don't.. Well not now that they've found  Cohen couldn't give them the goods they were promised and paid for.

Your decision to live in California, the state ranked last in quality of life and thats legislature is currently considering a bill to to replace Washington’s or Lincoln’s birthday with “International Workers Day” is perfectly consistent with your political views:  half-assed.

Thanks for your kind welcome, rank disinformation is generally worth counteracting.

Trump isn't someone I'd have over for dinner, but he is effective at playing his game and thus far the results have been sufficient to generate a passing grade from me.

And that's all anyone can really hope for where the brer patch of politics is concerned anyway.

We survived the Trojan Horse, my wager is we'll mostly thrive with Trump at helm.

Something about Stormey Daniels’ lawyer stinks to high heavan!


“...Daniels's previous lawyer advised her to stick to her agreements. In contrast, Avenatti OK'd her violating with impunity her nondisclosure agreement on “60 Minutes” despite a binding arbitration judgment against her. She has acknowledged on Twitter that she is not paying for her lawyer. So who is? And did he indemnify her against all multimillion-dollar penalties?...”

It wasn't an American deal with Iran though...It was the UN security council, plus the EH. The EU have a far bigger vested interest in Iran not having nuclear weapons than the USA. But now, its in flux. The rest of the SC and the EU will likely honour it if they can, but the alleged sanctions that Trump is going to try and impose will simply provoke Iran to say fuck you. They have a population of about 80 million, and quite highly educated at that. The only countries that will suffer are ones that the USA need to be on their side; Trump doesn't understand that, nor does he care. I wonder what the appetite would be for US military action on Iran? I think very low, especially as Trump said that the wars that went before were wrong.

Bingo!  It was an Obama deal with Iran and other countries who couldn’t care less about U.S. interests or security and the American people had nothing to do with it.  It was a cheap hustle worthy of the cheap hustlers who engineered it and then bragged about their misrepresentations to, and manipulation of, the MSM and the people.  You know, the same sort of con job they used to foist the ACÁ on the nation.

Blah blah blah...C'mon then submariner, what would YOU do. Neither of us is a diplomat, neither of us is likely to be. The only reason Trump has pulled the plug on this is because Obama was the POTUS at the time. It isn't just Iran; He's got his fellow swamp life to basically undo everything (or try to) that had Obama's signature on it. Which is why less fuel efficient and dirtier vehicles can now be built, though the makers probably won't. It's why oil companies and coal mine owners can pollute rivers and lakes with impunity. Obama didn't get it all right, but he didn't get it all right either. Trump is just a petulant child. If he can't have the glory, he doesn't want anyone else to either. The sanctions will make a lot of things more expensive because countries that use Irans oil are major exporters. Yes, that includes the States too.


Most of the regulations that Trump eased were imposed before Obama was even on the scene by both Democrat and a Republican administrations but don't try to change the subject.

In 2015 the house of Representatives passed a bill to block the Iran Deal which the Dem controlled Senate killed.  The vote on the procedural motion was 58 to 42, falling two votes short of the 60 votes needed to consider the resolution rejecting the agreement.  Given the vote count it is a virtual certainty that  the bill would have passed handily if Reed had not resorted to procedural chicanery and allowed it be considered on a straight up or down vote.   At the time prominent Democrats like Shumar, Nadler, Menéndez and Engel came out against the deal in strong terms.   Has the deal improved with age?

I think you'll find that Trump hasn't come up with anything to improve on the Iran deal...He's of course ranted about sanctions--No doubt the toughest sanctions ever, big beautiful bigly sanctions...But why not ask the Sate Dept how that's going to be implemented..  ::)

It's statements like the above that have made you the legendary blowhard that you are.  The many things wrong with the deal have been spelled out many times herein in clear unambiguous terms.  One would think that even you could put your thinking cap on and come up with revisions to the agreement that would make it something more than total capitulation to Iran's nuclear ambitions  drawn out over a ten year period.   However, since you have posted nothing that would lead anyone to suspect that you have any problem at all with an unstable apocalyptic theocracy possessing nuclear weapons beginning in 2025, I doubt that you've given it any consideration, preferring instead to focus on posting unhinged anti Trump rhetoric.

Why wouldn't anyone believe it? He calls the fat kid in NK honourable (Who has launched missiles) and tears up an agreement with Iran that even Pompeo said was keeping their side of the bargain..I wonder if his cult will be so happy when gas prices go up as a result?  If Trump decided this afternoon that he wanted the Whitehouse painted bright red with green stripes it wouldn't surprise me.

He said he has been acting honorably in recent negotiations.  Stop listening to the Stormy Daniels narrative and get the facts.

The cat's out of the bag now, and there's a difference between how you should act once a country has nuclear weapons and while they're visibly trying to acquire them. NK has achieved their long stated (ie since the 60s) goal of developing nukes despite all the sanctions, domestic issues, and efforts to stop them so it's not as though they're going to easily (if ever) give them up. So why is it unreasonable to encourage them to now shift the resources used on their nuclear weapons to less destructive areas?

Also I should point out that encouraging development of peaceful usage of nuclear energy (eg building nuclear reactors to keep their people warm) is one of the core tenets of the Non Proliferation Treaty. North Korea was a party to this treaty until 2003 and Iran still is.



How well has that policy worked out?   Apparently you and I have a different understanding of the concept of nuclear nonproliferation.  My understanding is that one of it’s fundamental aims is to prevent dangerous regimes from getting nuclear weapons (beyond those who already have them.)  The Iran deal did not do that.  In fact it pretty much guaranteed that Iran will have a deliverable nuclear weapon in 2025.  Moreover, Iran sits on one of the worlds largest oil reserves.  The idea that it needs nuclear reactors to satisfy it’s energy needs is laughable.

18. Emotionalize, Antagonize, and Goad Opponents. If you can't do anything else, chide and taunt your opponents and draw them into emotional responses which will tend to make them look foolish and overly motivated, and generally render their material somewhat less coherent. Not only will you avoid discussing the issues in the first instance, but even if their emotional response addresses the issue, you can further avoid the issues by then focusing on how 'sensitive they are to criticism.'

5. Sidetrack opponents with name calling and ridicule.
This is also known as the primary 'attack the messenger'  ploy, though other methods qualify as variants of that approach. Associate opponents with unpopular titles such as 'kooks', 'right-wing', 'liberal', 'left-wing', 'terrorists', 'conspiracy buffs',  'radicals', 'militia', 'racists', 'religious fanatics',  'sexual deviates', and so forth. This makes others  shrink from support out of fear of gaining the same label, and you avoid dealing with issues.

3. Create rumor mongers.  Avoid discussing issues by describing all charges, regardless of venue or evidence, as mere rumors and wild accusations. Other derogatory terms mutually exclusive of truth may work as well. This method which works especially well with a silent press, because the only way the public  can learn of the facts are through such 'arguable rumors'. If you can associate the material with the Internet, use this fact to certify it a 'wild rumor' from a 'bunch of kids on the Internet' which can have no basis in fact.


6. Hit and Run. In any public forum, make a brief attack of your opponent or the opponent position and then scamper off before an answer can be fielded, or simply ignore any answer. This works extremely well in Internet  and letters-to-the-editor environments where a steady stream of new identities can be called upon without having to explain criticism, reasoning -- simply make an accusation or other  attack, never discussing issues, and never answering any subsequent response, for that would dignify the opponent's viewpoint.

Classic shit heel liberal move.

It's wishful thinking sure, but maybe if there was less of a focus on the nuclear issue and more on peace and better conditions for the populace we'd have some progress as opposed to none. You don't see anyone complaining about their biological and chemical weapons, or the masses of artillery pointing at Seoul when they are just as deadly.
 India, Pakistan, and the potential acquisition of nuclear weapons by Saudi Arabia are much more concerning than NK. NK is fairly predictable in the way they conduct themselves and - excluding the possibility of regime collapse - them having nukes doesn't really bother me at all beyond potentially selling their expertise to other parties as they have with other weapons.

That’s pretty much the soft-headed thinking that allowed N.K. to develop nuclear weapons over the years. Clinton gave them nuclear technology so they could build nuclear reactors to keep their people warm.  Maybe if we organized an enormous group hug and sent James Taylor over to sing You’ve Got a Friend everything would be just dandy.

Your last thought is a nice, reasonable wish -- gradually lessening tensions thanks to regular, ongoing diplomatic activity -- except for the reality that the two people calling most of the shots are Trump and Kim. They're each looking to score a coup. Slow, long term progress is not really on the table. They each want a big win and they want it now.

Worse still, the U.S. and its allies have security interests diametrically opposed to North Korea's, especially now that they have nukes and are close to having a working ICBM. Maybe everyday border disputes (eg. fishing rights) and some other issues could be successfully negotiated, but there's no middle ground here between having nukes and totally giving up those nukes. Not with a dictatorship as historically untrustworthy as NK. Inspection regimes have been tried in NK and failed. The possibility of Kim accepting an effective inspection regime is extremely unlikely.

So, I'm guessing the summit will fail and each side will return to threatening the other with total destruction. Until we get a new and much smarter set of leaders in Washington, the best policy may just be for everyone to keep their fingers crossed.

Pish posh. If negotiations fail additional sanctions will be imposed and everybody including Kim understands that.  This is the only shot Kim has at survivial.  Given that Trump will more than likely pull out of Obama’s toothless agreement with Iran unless the terms are beefed up, what makes you think that he will let NK swizzle him like Iran swizzled Kerry, Obama and you.  Stop thinking like a liberal twit and try thinking like a rational adult.

Just wanted to point out that many people and most of the media are making it seem like an accomplishment to get NK to the bargaining table on their nuclear program, more so because it's a direct negotiation between NK and the U.S. involving POTUS.

 IMO, at this point it's no accomplishment at all. NK has always wanted direct talks with the U.S. (mainly for propaganda purposes and to cut out local allies like Japan). We've always refused direct talks, even before nukes were the issue. So, this is a win for NK to this point. Also, China is starting to relax sanctions, taking advantage of all the happy talk.

Kim is playing this smart. He's given up nothing tangible to date and he's already made gains ahead of the summit. As for the outcome, I'd bet on Kim being a better negotiator than Trump and the world holding its breath and hoping that hawks like Bolton and Pompeo can stop Trump from making dangerous concessions in return for empty promises. Oh, the irony of Bolton maybe getting in Trump's ear and saving us from an even worse situation than we have now.

It's going to take one very smart, very tough president to get NK to give up its nukes, something they have absolutely no intention of doing regardless of what they say. Trump will fail like all his predecessors. But hey, maybe the next president. Always hope, I guess.

You have a lightening grasp of the glaringly obvious.  Of course there are no guarantees that N.K. has pure motives and will follow through on it’s recently arrived at willingness to give up its nukes if the U.S guarantees that no overt or covert action will be taken to overthrow the regime.  Trump has repeatedly emphasized that there will be no agreement that does not provide for total denuclearization and full access to all facilities for the purposes of regular and impromptu inspections.  He also said that if any disegenuousness or waffling on the part of N.K. is detected he will end the talks.  Perhaps you would feel better if he sent Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton to offer gifts and walk away with exactly nothing again.

Your assertion that Trump agreeing to direct talks is some sort of concession is just plain silly.   No President has applied the pressure on NK and China that Trump has which is exactly what has brought us to the point where direct talks are appropriate.  What concession do you imagine Trump might make that would make things worse than they were when he took office?  Do you think that he will agree to NK’s continued testing of nuclear weapons and long range missiles and allow Kim to continue to openly threaten the U.S. and our allies?

What bothers me most about you rabid anti-Trumpers is that you are willing to abandon all objectivity and reason to avoid giving Trump the credit he is due?
