Trump's Bucket List:

- Step into North Korea

Another one checked off for Trump. Using the US military appratus for another photo-op.

Javanka having no purpose being there. Free trip to the DMZ on taxpayers' expense.

Edit: Nothing accomplished since Singapore. The "historic" meeting is nothing more than an agreement to have more meetings. Trump doing a great job at capturing the news headlines again after a weak G20.

Yep, spot on as always.  A deeply unpopular president struggling with numerous investigations at home, rape allegations or what is basically a normal day for him, needs a booster so decides to pop in to see his old murderous buddie in the North for a base boosting photo op.  Considering the G20 was a complete pile of shit for him, from saying MBS was his friend and refusing to take questions about Khashoggi, his farcical talk with Putin and his grinning and finger-wagging about messing around with the US elections and his ridiculous comments about the climate and how the US has the cleanest water and air and there's nothing to worry about?  Then gets a photo op to boost his ratings.  Love Osario Cortez laying into Ivanka for having the cheek to be anywhere near other world leaders or trying to talk seriously about anything.   :laugh: 

What is trump going to come up with before Mueller sits before the committees in a couple of weeks?  The mind boggles.  It's going to have to be something big.

Good comment from WP...

Whether or not one supports President Trump, no one can deny that he is the first President in American history to be humiliated by the leaders of Iran, Russia, and North Korea, in the same week.

You can add China to that list..

And this is even before we get on to his deplorable racist son questioning Kamala Harris's blackness.  :rolleyes:

If I were a betting man, I'd say Harris has a really good chance of beating Trump in 2020, that is if he makes it that far...

The Mall is a place of public reconciliation.

Although originally conceived as a wide avenue in Pierre L’Enfant’s 1791 plan for the city, the Mall and its surrounding parks were configured in the early 20th century as a grand symbol of national reunification, centered on a monument to Abraham Lincoln, the man who led the country through civil war. From the Lincoln Memorial, one looks down the long expanse of the Mall to the Capitol, at the base of which is a monument to Ulysses S. Grant, who won the war against the South. And from the opposite side, one looks across Memorial Bridge, which connects the District to Virginia, and by extension, the loyal North to the defeated South. Memorial Bridge also joins the Mall to Arlington National Cemetery, where Civil War dead are honored along with those who have fought in battles ever since.

The Mall is fundamentally a civic rather than a military space.

The grounds around the Lincoln Memorial have become cluttered with war memorials, but the best of those, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, was also conceived as a place of reconciliation. It doesn’t celebrate the war whose fallen it honors. Rather, it focuses entirely on the pain of loss, and the memory of those who died. It is the opposite of bellicose, a place for national healing rather than a patriotic display, which is why it was so controversial when it was new.

The drama of Civil War reconciliation was often hollow, a whitewash of sentiment over the divisions of a country that was fully engaged in the racism of Jim Crow and segregation. But over the past century, the monumental central axis of the nation’s capital has evolved from a particular statement about post-Civil War reconciliation to a broader one about reconciling national ideals with national realities. The Lincoln Memorial, which has the words “to bind up the nation’s wounds” inscribed on its walls, isn’t just a grand edifice ideal for photo-ops and television spectacle. It exerts gravitational pull on people who sense a contradiction in what the nation claims to be and what it is in fact. A memorial to this country’s most thoughtful president is now the locus of a basic kind of civic thinking: How can we reconcile our treatment of African Americans, people of color, ethnic and religious minorities, women, the poor and the unemployed, and LGBT people with the basic thesis that “all men are created equal”?

The gravitas of this place also exerts a pull on politicians who want to lay claim to its emotional power and aspirational symbolism. The Mall is appropriate for the quasi-political pomp of inaugurations in part because most inaugurations include some kind of call for national unity. Donald Trump is not the first politician to attempt to intertwine his personal brand with the nation’s most revered brand, Lincoln, and Lincoln’s call for “a lasting peace among ourselves.”

But no president since the Civil War has been more uninterested in the rhetoric of healing and unity than Donald Trump. It is difficult to express how deeply repugnant his effort to politicize this space is to commonly held American ideals. The display of tanks near the Lincoln Memorial is just a bitter and expensive absurdity compared with the co-option of Lincoln’s temple for the personal aggrandizement of a man who celebrates political violence, who proudly calls himself a “counterpuncher,” and who regularly tweets insults calculated for maximum divisiveness. In the long arc of Trump’s public career, there isn’t a shred of evidence that he understands who Lincoln was, what he stood for and how he accomplished it.

And it isn’t just a matter of symbols or rhetoric. The aesthetics of Trump are the opposite of the aesthetics of the Mall, which took form during the progressive era, at a moment when many in public life were deeply concerned about the evolution of the country into a commercial leviathan. In cities such as New York and Chicago, great fortunes were being made building up into the sky, asserting the power and privilege of wealth. Markets were unstoppable, commercial development proceeded like a forest fire and the streetscapes of our great trading enclaves expressed the frenzied ambition of untrammeled capitalism.

Washington would not go in that direction. By design, it would remain a horizontal city, and it would be rich in public space. It would not have a skyline, and even today, Beaux-Arts palaces such as the Eisenhower Executive Office Building and the Library of Congress’s Thomas Jefferson Building look a little out of place, a little too fancy, a little too sympathetic to Gilded Age ideas of luxury rather than classical ideals of openness and access.

Fundamentally, Washington is one of the few cities in this country that considers beauty to be integral to its identity. Other cities have beautiful things, beautiful buildings and beautiful parks, and many have more beautiful settings. But Washington came of age under the influence of the City Beautiful movement, which felt there was an essential connection between beautiful design and our higher political and civic ideals.

And that’s why Trump’s Fourth of July spectacle feels so wrong, why so many people who live in Washington feel that his use of the Mall for a personal political rally violates sacred space more egregiously than many previous efforts to trash democratic norms. Washington is not a perfect city any more than America is a perfect country. But if you live here, you quickly come to feel that the beauty of this city transcends the ugliness of politics, that there is something fine and lasting in the city’s design that can never be spoiled, no matter which party holds office and what administration is running things.

People will often ask you, has Trump changed the city? And when it comes to how Washingtonians feel about their homes, their neighbors, their colleagues and the splendor of the city itself, the answer has been no. But now he intends to lay hold of the best, most perfect part of the city, to claim for his own purposes a civic celebration that has long been a festival of diversity, inclusion and old-fashioned, mostly apolitical fun. The Fourth of July, in Washington, is beloved because for a moment, the city feels whole, and one can imagine that perhaps someday the country will feel whole, too. It is a fantasy, but a fantasy we abandon at our peril.

The president isn’t interested in wholeness, nor in Lincoln, nor healing of any sort. He has an unerring sense for what is ugly in our public life, and after exercising that strange talent on the national and international stage, he will make a show of it here, in our home. And that hurts.

How would we repair the damage in a post-Trump America?

Quote
How do we ever recover from the fact that a significant part of our population STILL supports a chronic and psychopathic liar; a rapist and self-professed sexual assault perpetrator; an ignoramus, devoid of even basic knowledge of American history, let alone the details of American government; an admirer of the world's tyrants and autocrats, who turns on, insults and badgers the nation's actual democratic allies in the world; a long-term tax cheat; a man who uses his office for the personal gain of himself and his family; a vicious racist and anti-immigration fanatic who delights in harming migrant families and children; a conceited blowhard with out-of-control anger issues; an autocrat who tries to use the peoples' government to pursue and imprison those he sees as his personal political enemies; a champion of corruption; and a man who has done almost nothing to actually help the majority of the people who voted him into office, instead choosing to support tax law changes that almost entirely help those who put the mass of his voters in dire straights to begin with?

The answer is: we don't.  America has already disgraced itself beyond repair.  We are a different nation now, having wasted whatever global good will we may have built up over the decades since World War II.  We may yet recover some of our damaged honor as a nation, but we'll never overcome the depths we have accepted.

Succinct...

"For the past two years, the American left has been haunted by a number: 53. It is the percentage of white women who voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election. In the sectors of the left where the figure and its implications have become a perennial theme, the number is treated both as disappointing and darkly unsurprising, a reflection of the conventional wisdom that white women would rather choose the racism espoused by the Republican party than join in the moral coalition represented by men of color and other women....

"What is wrong with white women? Why do half of them so consistently vote for Republicans, even as the Republican party morphs into a monstrously ugly organization that is increasingly indistinguishable from a hate group? The most likely answer seems to be that white women vote for Republicans for the same reason that white men do: because they are racist."
https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/nov/09/white-women-vote-republican-why

The left wants politics to be a matter of white men versus all other demographics.

wow.  just wow.  i have a white friend (woman) married to a hispanic male.  she voted for trump because she is against abortion (supposedly trump is too). 

i don't get how anyone can take stuff like that seriously.  such a copout to say "you did this, so you have to be racist".  if a minority votes republican, does that make them a racist as well? 

i usually avoid these political threads (still think waygook should take it off the front page) but that's just stupid.  i already know some of you will accuse my friend of being a racist, despite the fact that she married a hispanic dude just because she voted for trump, but to see a paper make such a blanket statement.   i get how you guys like to call each other racists and other names all the time but this is supposed to be the news.


Yes, the evangelicals vote republican on the abortion (LBGT rights) issue, but many of them also say they are supporting their vision of the US as a white, Christian nation.  They firmly support his anti-immigration stance.

BTW, the article linked to was a comment, not the news.

Trump’s July 4 event and weekend protests bankrupted D.C. security fund, mayor says

President Trump’s overhauled July Fourth celebration cost the D.C. government $1.7 million, an amount that — combined with police expenses for demonstrations through the weekend — has bankrupted a special fund used to protect the nation’s capital from terrorist threats and provide security at events such as rallies and state funerals.

In a letter to the president Tuesday, D.C. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D) warned that the fund has now been depleted and is estimated to be running a $6 million deficit when the current fiscal year ends on Sept. 30. The mayor also noted that the account was never reimbursed for $7.3 million in expenses from Trump’s 2017 inauguration.

Bowser requested that the White House fully reimburse the fund. Without that money, city officials say, Washingtonians will be put in the unprecedented position of funding federal security needs with local tax dollars.

Considering that Trump has broken at least half of the 10 Commandments, it's laughable that he still gets support from Evangelicals who are a one issue (abortion) voting block.
Are the Democrats offering a plausible alternative?

All the Democrats seem to be offering is an alternative religion of Fundamentalist Social Justice. The days of Jimmy Carter or William Jennings Bryan are long gone.
Justice for all is what Democrats are proposing. Why does that so bother you?

Strange that you knock Bryan, a good friend to the farmer.

Your reading comprehension sucks. The references to Carter and Bryan were to illustrate how Christians used to be an essential part of the Democratic Party's identity and people who were openly deeply religious could be leaders. Those days are long gone.

Jiimmy Carter is still a fairly  influential voice in the Democratic Party.

maybe this is the reason why I missed your point. It was way off the mark.

"When 10 Democratic presidential candidates were pressed on immigration policy during their recent debate, Pete Buttigieg took his answer in an unexpected direction: He turned the question into a matter of faith.

Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, accused Republicans who claim to support Christian values of hypocrisy for backing policies separating children from their families at the U.S.-Mexico border. The GOP, he declared, "has lost all claim to ever use religious language again."

It was a striking moment that highlighted an evolution in the way Democrats are talking about faith in the 2020 campaign. While Republicans have been more inclined to weave faith into their rhetoric, particularly since the rise of the evangelical right in the 1980s, several current Democratic White House hopefuls are explicitly linking their views on policy to religious values."

If you want to bring up religion, your constant flouting of the Eighth Commandment should be part of that conversation. Of course trump too disobeys that commandment and most of the others as well.

It's a shame that so many have been mislead (and fleeced) by the so-called religious leaders of the right.  There is no comparison between them and a man like Jimmy Carter.

Pressley was born in Cincinnati, Tlaib was born in Detroit and Ocasio-Cortez was born in New York — about 20 miles from where Trump was born.

“Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came,” he said. “Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!”

Just posting again for the depths he has sunk to on this occasion...

“It doesn’t concern me because many people agree with me,” Trump said. “And all I’m saying — they want to leave, they can leave.”

“These are people that hate our country,” Trump said. “They hate our country. They hate it, I think, with a passion.”

“When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said,” Trump wrote. “So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!”

We will never be a Socialist or Communist Country. IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY HERE, YOU CAN LEAVE! It is your choice, and your choice alone. This is about love for America. Certain people HATE our Country....
....They are anti-Israel, pro Al-Qaeda, and comment on the 9/11 attack, “some people did something.” Radical Left Democrats want Open Borders, which means drugs, crime, human trafficking, and much more....
....Detention facilities are not Concentration Camps! America has never been stronger than it is now – rebuilt Military, highest Stock Market EVER, lowest unemployment and more people working than ever before. Keep America Great!
The Dems were trying to distance themselves from the four “progressives,” but now they are forced to embrace them. That means they are endorsing Socialism, hate of Israel and the USA! Not good for the Democrats!
The Obama Administration built the Cages, not the Trump Administration! DEMOCRATS MUST GIVE US THE VOTES TO CHANGE BAD IMMIGRATION LAWS.
MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

For the love of Jebus...
