  1. Yeah this could be possible, they need the have Pence pick Haley then announce he is not seeking election in 2020 and let Haley pick a running mate....oh and yes Trixie I know..."I am a stupid winger" "this is a dumb idea" "I have no idea how this all works" there I saved you from having to quote me to say that stuff......
  2. Backtracking.... https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/trump-administration-appears-to-reverse-syria-decision-following-backlash/ar-AAIqIMv?li=BBnb7Kz A senior administration official on an organized call with reporters appeared to contradict President Donald Trump about Syria policy late Monday, refuting interpretations of his statements from earlier in the day that prompted broad outrage from supporters and opponents alike. The U.S. is not removing its forces from Syria in the face of a Turkish incursion, said the official, speaking on the condition of anonymity. Rather, the president ordered roughly 50 special operations troops in northern Syria to relocate to a different part of the country after he learned that Turkey has planned an offensive against U.S.-backed Kurdish forces in Syria. The official said that offensive had not yet begun
  3. Clinton was a text book blue dog Dem IMO, Obama not so much, he may have been a bit of a centrist but his heart was further left than his policy....I think if he could have gone more left he would have. This is valid it does not seem to be getting a lot of attention, then there was Shokin who is a horribly corrupt lying sack of shit , probably why Trump thinks he was very good....Trump praised him on the call....I assume that is who Trump is referencing here. On the call transcript they released.... The Pre·sident: Good because I· heard you had a prosecutor who· was very·good and he was shut down and that's really unfair. _·A lot of people are talking about that, the way they shut your �ery good prosecutor down and you had some �ery bad people involved.
  4. Well if the Dems run some middle of the road folks maybe I would support them, but the current direction the Dem party is taking is not one that lends itself to swinging folks like me. The same thing actually goes for the GOP, I wish both parties would move more to the middle but the opposite is happening.
  5. LOL neither of us are right wing you kook......and both of us are pro-choice, we both support gay rights, both are atheist, neither support Trump etc....only far left loonies like yourself consider us right wing.
  6. Yep.....I cant make a post without her following up with some insulting comment....I am not voting for Trump in 2020 and I didn't in 2016 but I didn't vote for Hillary and neither did Shaggy so that's not good enough..... Well lets just say it like this, Trump is horrible and he has to go, I dont fit into any box you can hang a R or D on, there is not much out there for someone who is atheist, pro 2nd, pro choice, pro gay rights, wants balanced budgets, entitlement reform, etc.....I am more socially liberal than I was 20 yrs ago, but I would never vote for someone like Warren or Sanders.....hell even Biden would be a tough vote for me....still I would rather see Biden for 4 yrs over 4 more years of Trump ( I mean I cant even imagine how bad that would get ), then I would probably be all aboard the Nikki Haley train for 2024.
  7. Neither me or Shaggy are going to vote Trump in 2020 anyways, though we probably wont vote for the Dem nom either.....I will say that running Biden helps in that area and running someone like Warren will hurt, a lot of folks like us wont vote for someone like Warren, Biden would be tough enough....but Warren will push some independents back to Trump IMO and running her gives Trump a chance where I think Biden would crush him.....but that's just my take.....
  8. I love the road sign at 1:16 of VA Beach 6 miles, and then they proceed to ride the bikes up the mountains........6 miles from VB........
  9. Your wrong most of these calls transcript end up on the regular network which this one did, and it like the others end up going out to the Cabinet members and other committee's etc....and there is nothing on this call that would prevent that.....in fact there are guidelines and criteria for what goes on the code word server and this call does not even come close, it was sent there to hide Trump being a fucking idiot......that in of itself is illegal and violates the codes I posted above. That's why the WB was told it happened by other people in the WH because they knew it was not suppose to go there and Trump and his team where trying to cover it up....
  10. The call was on the regular network with all the other normal non classified calls etc, which is where these were normally kept, the call was then moved to the secure server to prevent it from going out to other depts etc as is normally the case with calls like this. The WB was even told by a WH official that the movement of the call to the code word server was a act of abuse as the call did not meet the criteria of being classified and that the WH was in damage control mode trying to "lock down" the call because they knew Trump had fucked up.
  11. Not sure if this has been posted and I am not reading through all these pages of shitpost to see but it sure seems to me Trump putting the Ukraine call on the code word "secret" level network would fall under this https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/CFR-2014-title28-vol1/pdf/CFR-2014-title28-vol1-sec17-22.pdf 28 CFR § 17.22 d: "(d) Information shall not be classified in order to conceal inefficiency, violations of law, or administrative error; to prevent embarrassment to a person, organization, or agency; to restrain competition; or to prevent or delay release of information that does not require protection in the interest of national security.
