I wonder where Egbut is on this

While everybody is chasing butterflies trying to find Russia's involvement in the hacking of the DNC computers and Pakistani computer expert with access to the DNC's servers is arrested trying to flee the country for Qatar

Nowhere,,,,arrested for bank fraud, just another sad case of human greed. Wait till the trial if you want an approximation of the truth.

Can you trust the Russians? Their contempt for the rule of law, long time business partners and world opinion is summed up in this simple statement from Siemans which didn't make the headlines but is damning in it's this space.

LOL Egnut bearing in mind that the vast majority of people in New Zealand could not find Crimea on the map, why would anybody in New Zealand care about four gas turbines that have allegedly been moved there from Southern Russia?

This is how it works Siemens is a company in American occupied Germany and the Americans made a play for the ancient Russian naval base at Sevastopol and got totally outsmarted

Nothing new in this the British and the French made a play for that base in the 19th century as did Hitler in the 20th (Vladimir Putin's own father fought at the fascists at the Battle of Sevastopol in WW2 btw)

Anyway having been frustrated in their attempt to occupy Crimea but having destroyed Ukraine in the process the Americans are pissed and have forced their vassals like occupied Germany not to do business there. That press release is just a CYA

I love waking up in the morning, looking out at the swamp to see what new 'Gator has crawled in to try to assert dominance. A Donnie From Queens, you are providing so much entertainment.

I see a little silhouetto of a man
Scaramucci, Scaramucci, will you do the Fandango?

And of course, he answered "Yes, Mein Fuhrer". Just another idiot dragged out of the idiot tree and dumped in the cesspool at 1600 Penn.

Whinges and moans like his little toddler boss about "Leaks, leaks I tells ya!" when his financial disclosure documents are published. Listen Scarra, it ain't no leak when it is information on the public record.

Tune in tomorrow to see if The Twittler in Chief can sink any lower.

Thunderbolt and lightning, very, very fright'ning me

I wonder when the media will wake up and start questioning ex Labour MP Ann Hartley about her complicity in her lard-arse in law's benefit fraud?

Was he connivance the first real Greens/Labour memorandum of misunderstanding?

Andrei....the only thing in your post that is correct is Kiwi's finding Crimea on the map. You surely don't believe your scribblings about Germany being owned by the US, if you do then you real ought to get out more....I recommend the old East Berlin.

David....I am now of the opinion that making fun of Trump is playing into his hands. There is a guiding hand here and the past is coming back to haunt us. The continuing rallies are reminiscent of Hitler and his appeal to the people and the latest rally where he addressed the boy scouts is a sobering repeat of the Hitler Youth rallies.

The Hitler Administration scrapped multi nation trade deals and instead concentrated on trading with smaller countries, at a beneficial tariff rate, in order to turn them into client states where once hooked stayed hooked because those in power could not turn the tap off without losing power. Ringing any bells yet?

On the plus side Obamacare stays. Trump does not care about the care bit, he only cares about the Obama bit......thank god for the senate.

Egbut, I agree. The fascists are in the Whitehouse. I was pointing out the similarities to post WW1 Germany two years ago. The sense of grievance, that others stole from us (reparations), that we need to take back what was ours (Lebensraum), that the old order has failed us and only an outsider can save the nation from itself.

Trump continues to hold rallies as an adoring crowd is preferable to the work of Presidenting.

But I must disagree about the making fun part. Sometimes satire is the only tool left to us, that mockery is a better tool to expose the emperor than arguing, and the best coups are the bloodless kind where the people wake up to the horrors being inflicted in their name, take to the streets and demand change, with the change finally coming through the criminal justice system and the ballot box.

Trump must be mocked and mocked mercilessly as it is the one thing he cannot stand.

Presidenting, LoL, as in drawing a red line then forgetting he ever did that, setting up a designed to fail unaffordable unfunded universal health care no collapsing as smalloperators are swept aside then followed by the big boys realising their big mistakes, reducing the military to a shadow of its historical strength, creating racial divisions so slowly healing after old Democratic abuse and misuse with BLM, politicising the traditionally independent Justice divisions that are supposed to be of the people, for the people and by the people.

Read a bit of History for gods sake, George Wallace, Strom Thurmond, Dixycrats, The KKK, then come back and discuss the wonderful Democratic Party and how they delivered on BLM's fore runners.

Just as modern socialist luvvies laud the massive steps they have made for Maori over seventy years of Ratana, and Maori seats. The disconnect is awesome.

David said...

Stupid is as stupid says, I guess Forrest Gump was a true story.

reducing the military to a shadow of its historical strength

The US spends more on national defense than China, Saudi Arabia, Russia, United Kingdom, India, France, and Japan combined.

politicising the traditionally independent Justice divisions that are supposed to be of the people, for the people and by the people.

Yes, Trump is certainly excelling in this, about his only achievement to date is the politicising of Justice.

Dixiecrats wanted to retain segregation, they were unwelcome in the Democrats and all fled to the rethuglicans. Strom Thurmond was one of those.

I am staggered that someone gets to be as old as you are and remains trapped in a cloud of dumbassery!

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

David, the master of revisionism. Now tell us how the nasty Jews murdered hundreds and thousands of those nice gentle Nazis between 1939 and 1945.

Adolf, I have no idea what you are trying to say. I doubt David does, either. And I doubt you have a clue what you are trying to say.

There were some valid rebuttals made and you blunder in with what? A Drumph-like stream of unconciousness babble.

I once thought Gravedodger the bigger waste of space here, but at least his witterings can eventually be reconstructed in to something approaching a point. Yours? I think your meds are due.
