PR cancelled the no-bid contract with Zinke's Whitefish buddy.

How about the woman cyclist who rode beside trump's car on the way to the golf course shooting him the bird the whole way?

Or the poll showing the military don't trust trumped up?

As for his tax reform plan:
Quote
    Reducing the statutory federal corporate tax rate from 35 to 20 percent would … increase average household income in the United States by, very conservatively, $4,000 annually. The increases recur each year, and the estimated total value of corporate tax reform for the average U.S. household is therefore substantially higher than $4,000. (CEA 2017)

This claim is clearly wrong. Economic logic and evidence argues strongly that American workers should not expect any noticeable wage boost from cutting corporate income taxes. The main findings of this paper are:

    Since World War II, productivity and wage growth in the U.S. economy have been significantly greater in periods with higher corporate tax rates.
    There is essentially no robust relationship between post-tax profit rates and productivity-enhancing business investment in the U.S. economy. This weak relationship is why efforts to boost post-tax profit rates with tax cuts will likely do little to grow productivity.
    Even were productivity to grow, it would not necessarily lead to wage growth (i.e., productivity growth is a necessary, not a sufficient, condition for wage growth). In fact, in recent decades, the link between economy-wide productivity growth and wages of the vast majority of American workers has been almost entirely severed. In other words, pay and productivity used to rise tightly together but they no longer do.
    A steep corporate tax rate cut in 1986 did nothing to reverse the widening fissure between typical workers’ pay and productivity growth—a gap that was already apparent in that year. Another corporate cut today would likely again fail to reconnect pay and productivity.
    To support its claim that corporate tax cuts would boost wages, the CEA report cherry-picks findings from the research literature and also uses a highly misleading graph relating wage changes over just a few years to corporate tax rate levels. Claims that cutting corporate taxes will boost wages should examine a longer time horizon and focus on tax changes, not levels.
    The real key to boosting wage growth for the vast majority of American workers is restoring economic leverage and bargaining power that workers once had but which have been redistributed from workers to capital owners and corporate managers. Yet the Trump agenda has consistently pushed policies and rule changes that further weaken workers’ leverage.

How soon before DeFartin refuses to admit he ever had anything to do with Trump, and actually it was just a big joke, just a bit of joshing on the intertubes, just a devil's advocate kind of thing to get people to wake up and think for themselves?

Don't get your hopes up too high on Manafort squealing like a piggy to the FBI. The dude was neck deep in Russian connections. Squeal too much about his masters and he might find himself on the receiving end of polonium flavored covfefe.

Agreed Manafort won't be squealing but will be doing time for upwards of 12 years which will encourage others to squeal like Gates and Papodopoulos.

I can agree with that. Papodopoulos was the weakest link by far. Before his conversion to a trumpite, he was stalwartly anti-Russian so his connections and fears of reprisal won't be anywhere near the levels of someone like Manafort . More importantly, he is young and doesn't want to spend over a decade in prison.

Though, if somehow Trump survives this whole thing, expect Manafort to get a pardon at the end of one of his terms.

From what I understand, some of these charges are "leveraged" prosecutions, meaning that not all of the charges can or will be applied, Manafort can be convicted of one or the other, but not both. Also, the standard punishment for most of these is in the misdemeanor range. I think only the conspiracy charge is usually treated as a felony, but that one also applies to the money laundering and might entail double jeopardy.

Donald Trump will not visit the heavily armed border dividing the Korean peninsula during his tour of Asia next week – breaking with an American presidential tradition intended to demonstrate Washington’s commitment to its South Korean allies by standing on the North Korean frontier.

A senior US administration official said Trump, who begins his 12-day visit in Japan on Sunday, would be too busy for a trip to the demilitarised zone (DMZ).

“The president is not going to visit the DMZ, there is not enough time in the schedule,” the official said.

The defence secretary, James Mattis, visited the area last week and Rex Tillerson, the secretary of state, went in March.

“It’s becoming a little bit of a cliché, frankly,” the official said.

Trump’s presence near the demarcation line that passes through the centre of the 2.5-mile wide, 155-mile-long strip of land would have carried particular significance at a time when regional tensions are high over Pyongyang’s ballistic missile and nuclear weapons programmes.

Instead he will meet US military personnel and their families at Camp Humphreys, about 90km south of Seoul. The base was recently expanded and now serves as the new headquarters of the US 8th Army, the cornerstone of the US military presence in South Korea.

“No president has visited Camp Humphreys and we thought that that made more sense in terms of its messaging, in terms of the chance to address families and troops there,” the official said.

He added that by going to Camp Humphreys, Trump would be demonstrating Washington’s commitment to its alliance with the South. “The South Korean government paid the vast majority of the costs for building that base and repositioning some of the US forces and their families on the peninsula,” he said.

What a woose!  Come on liddle Donald, show you've trousers to go with that mouth of yours.  You scared of KJE?  'No president has been to Camp Humphreys'  What a way to spin that.  I'm sure no president has been to Seoraksan, but they don't go there either.
I heard that once he's impeached, he'll sign to be the cowardly lion in a remake for he Wizard of Oz.

If Trump went to the DMZ, you'd criticize him. If he doesn't go, you'll criticize him.

Now that the evidence is out there, why aren't the carping connies on this forum admitting they were wrong about facebook and twitter?

And what about jared and the russkis? Is he the next domino?

Quote
Jared Kushner’s $7.5 billion plan to transform a Manhattan skyscraper into a mix of high-end residences and retail has been deemed “not feasible” by the project’s partner, putting the future of the property — saddled with $1.2 billion in debt — in doubt.

Steven Roth, chief executive and chairman of office giant Vornado Realty Trust, owns 49.5 percent of the offices at 666 Fifth Ave. and said Tuesday that it did not appear that redevelopment plans, hatched by Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law, before he left the company in January to become a senior White House adviser, were likely to succeed.

Quote
Federal investigators know that Kushner met with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in Trump Tower last December and later met with Sergey Gorkov, head of the Kremlin-controlled VEB bank in two meetings that he didn’t, at first, disclose publicly or on his application for his national-security clearance. After those meetings became public, Kushner and the White House said the contacts were made in his role as a Trump adviser and didn’t involve discussion of his family business. But VEB and a spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin described the meetings quite differently, noted Adam Schiff of California, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee. They said that Kushner was there in his capacity as head of his family’s real estate business. Investigators say they are studying those accounts with keen interest.

On Sunday, an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll found that just 38 percent of people said they thought the president was doing a good job—the lowest number so far. About 58 percent of respondents said they disapproved of his performance.

On Monday, Gallup put his numbers even lower, finding that 33 percent approved of the president and 62 percent did not.

And 1.1 million right-minded Americans have signed a petition calling for bozo bone spurs' impeachment.

lol Trump is too SCARED to go. Or his daycare handlers know he'd just go and give the NK guards the finger because he's a typical NYC guido douchebag.

I'm looking forward to his stunning nuggets of international diplomacy when he comes here.

May God be w/ the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas. The FBI & law enforcement are on the scene. I am monitoring the situation from Japan.

So judging by Trump's tweet, another white gunman who shot and killed a lot of people.  Another win for the NRA as the 'thoughts and prayers' are for those 'good folks' and that's about it.  Then the 8 people killed in New York has Trump demanding stricter immigration and any number of other laws to stop it from happening again.
 :-[

So are we just supposed to let anyone in without vetting? Are we supposed to restrict the movement of our own citizens?

I understand the point about hypocrisy you're trying to make, I just think that's a poor example.
