No you didn't. You posted a cartoon; I posted a photograph of the Federal Building in San Francisco.

But your self-righteous indignation is duly noted...

Good. In that case, I apologize from the bottom of my black, withered heart.

However, I can't promise it won't happen again. All this talk about walls and government shutdowns is making me nervous. I hope you understand...

Good news this cycle.
VERY good news for the USA.
The fans of IMPOTUS just got it wrong is all.
And if they put down their guns and come out with their hands up...

they'll be forgiven. They were just dumb is all.
Very fucking dumb.

I mean sure, many will crawl back into their holes
and make a bunch of noise with their air gaspers.
But the days of the bigots and nazis and climate change deniers
and deficit hawks and the armageddon wishers are very soon just over.
Goodfuckingbye to all the ratfuckers!

Reading Trump's Twitter feed over the last 24 hours, a neutral observer would gain the impression of a personality in meltdown. Worrying insofar that his meltdown could mean our meltdown. I found the line about him being almost the only person in the WH particularly perturbing.

US President Donald Trump has concealed details of his meetings with Russia's Vladimir Putin
Greg Miller·13:55, Jan 13 2019

US President Donald Trump has gone to extraordinary lengths to conceal details of his conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin, including on at least one occasion taking possession of the notes of his own interpreter and instructing the linguist not to discuss what had transpired with other administration officials, current and former US officials say.

Trump did so after a meeting with Putin in 2017 in Hamburg that was also attended by then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. US officials learned of Trump's actions when a White House adviser and a senior State Department official sought information from the interpreter beyond a readout shared by Tillerson.

US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland in July 2018.

The constraints that Trump imposed are part of a broader pattern by the president of shielding his communications with Putin from public scrutiny and preventing even high-ranking officials in his own administration from fully knowing what he has told one of the United States' main adversaries.

As a result, US officials said there is no detailed record, even in classified files, of Trump's face-to-face interactions with the Russian leader at five locations over the past two years.

Such a gap would be unusual in any presidency, let alone one that Russia sought to install through what US intelligence agencies have described as an unprecedented campaign of election interference.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is thought to be in the final stages of an investigation that has focused largely on whether Trump or his associates conspired with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign. The new details about Trump's continued secrecy underscore the extent to which little is known about his communications with Putin since becoming president.

Former US officials said that Trump's behaviour is at odds with the known practices of previous presidents, who have relied on senior aides to witness meetings and take comprehensive notes then shared with other officials and departments.

Trump's secrecy surrounding Putin "is not only unusual by historical standards, it is outrageous", said Strobe Talbott, a former deputy secretary of state now at the Brookings Institution, who participated in more than a dozen meetings between former presidents Bill Clinton and Boris Yeltsin in the 1990s.

"It handicaps the US. government - the experts and advisers and Cabinet officers who are there to serve [the president] - and it certainly gives Putin much more scope to manipulate Trump."

A White House spokesman disputed that characterisation and said that the Trump administration has sought to "improve the relationship with Russia" after the Obama administration "pursued a flawed 'reset' policy that sought engagement for the sake of engagement".

The Trump administration "has imposed significant new sanctions in response to Russian malign activities," said the spokesman, who spoke on the condition of anonymity and noted that Tillerson in 2017 "gave a fulsome readout of the meeting immediately afterward to other US officials in a private setting, as well as a readout to the press".

Special counsel Robert Mueller is thought to be in the final stages of an investigation that has focused largely on whether Trump or his associates conspired with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Trump allies said the president thinks the presence of subordinates impairs his ability to establish a rapport with Putin, and that his desire for secrecy may also be driven by embarrassing leaks that occurred early in his presidency.

The meeting in Hamburg happened several months after The Washington Post and other news organisations revealed details about what Trump had told senior Russian officials during a meeting with Russian officials in the Oval Office.

Trump disclosed classified information about a terror plot, called former FBI director James Comey a "nut job", and said that firing Comey had removed "great pressure" on his relationship with Russia.

The White House launched internal leak hunts after that and other episodes, and sharply curtailed the distribution within the National Security Council of memos on the president's interactions with foreign leaders.

"Over time it got harder and harder, I think, because of a sense from Trump himself that the leaks of the call transcripts were harmful to him," said a former administration official.

Previous US presidents have required senior aides to attend meetings with adversaries including the Russian president largely to ensure that there are not misunderstandings and that others in the administration are able to follow up on any agreements or plans.

Trump down to 40.6% approval rating, making him, once again, the most unpopular US president since records began. Even Rasmussen Reports, the Trump opinion poll darling, has him at only 45%.

John Darkow has a good sense of observation
:mrgreen: 8)

Reading Woodward's book.
The only thing that matters for Trump is money.
He isn't brainy enough to understand what's beyond.
He has a conception of things that dates back to the 50's.
Sure, he adores poor educated folks.
They have the same vison of the Future.
Going back !
:P

Yesterday, Lindsey Graham suggested that Trump could open the government for three weeks, and then decide whether to use emergency powers to build the wall.

That must be some emergency, if Graham wants him to wait for three weeks...

There's so much bad news for Trump these days that one wouldn't know where to start
https://www.msnbc.com/the-last-word/watch/brennan-on-trump-hiding-putin-convos-never-encountered-a-situation-like-this-1427340868002

On TV last night, they were showing peoples going to Charity Food Counter to get a meal.
Peoples affected by the shutdown that is.
I think it's a battle he won't win.
And that may well be the turning point.
His own stupidity will finally kill him.
A wall or something on the table... Not a hard choice.

If he falls, I promess I won't cry !
