It comes out that trump made the North Korea decision on his own, in a snap reflex, without consulting a single person. His team was left scrambling to try and cover his stupidity again.

Well, give it a day and the NRA will talk him into changing his opinion, and then give it another day and he'll claim he never said what he said and buttery males.

Another House seat flipped blue in Pennsylvania. It's only until November, but it's a district trump won by 20%.
Just think back to the uphill battle the GOP had after W Bush. They are going to have a much worse time following this train wreck.

Watch though, for the mid terms I bet some of them start suddenly turning anti-Trump all of a sudden. They are all sleazy and will jump loyalties as soon as it is convenient.

We can hope. And hopefully, the Democrats can actually do more than just running on "We're not those a******s".

trump picks tv host to be top economic advisor. Seems about right. Larry Kudlow has literally been wrong about everything.

Mark Klimek This guy is a mess:

In 2005, he said “all the bubbleheads” looking for a housing-price crash in Las Vegas and Naples, Florida, and the wider economy, would be proven wrong. By December 2007, the month the National Bureau of Economic Research later dated the start of the recession, he was arguing there was no recession and that the “Bush boom continues.”

In January 2008--just before one of the biggest banking crises the world has ever seen--he said "Banks are taking significant steps to repair their balance sheets. Even though some people might not be happy with the speed, the reality is things are improving.”

He predicted in 2010 that Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen would spur higher inflation. (It remained at historically low levels for her entire term.)​

It is all those Democrats... That's why his cabinet is so depleted, not you know because he's a lunatic firing everyone for no reason.


Also just remember, he fired Tillerson for "daring" to question Russia using military grade chemical weapons to kill people in the UK. We're turning that into a partisan issue now because... sure, why not?

In fundraising speech, Trump says he made up trade claim in meeting with Justin Trudeau

President Trump boasted in a fundraising speech Wednesday that he made up information in a meeting with the leader of a top U.S. ally, saying he insisted to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that the United States runs a trade deficit with its neighbor to the north without knowing whether that was the case.

“Trudeau came to see me. He’s a good guy, Justin. He said, ‘No, no, we have no trade deficit with you, we have none. Donald, please,’ ” Trump said, mimicking Trudeau, according to audio of the private event in Missouri obtained by The Washington Post. “Nice guy, good-looking guy, comes in — ‘Donald, we have no trade deficit.’ He’s very proud because everybody else, you know, we’re getting killed.

“ ... So, he’s proud. I said, ‘Wrong, Justin, you do.’ I didn’t even know. ... I had no idea. I just said, ‘You’re wrong.’ You know why? Because we’re so stupid. … And I thought they were smart. I said, ‘You’re wrong, Justin.’ He said, ‘Nope, we have no trade deficit.’ I said, ‘Well, in that case, I feel differently,’ I said, ‘but I don’t believe it.’ I sent one of our guys out, his guy, my guy, they went out, I said, ‘Check, because I can’t believe it.’

‘Well, sir, you’re actually right. We have no deficit, but that doesn’t include energy and timber. … And when you do, we lose $17 billion a year.’ It’s incredible.”

The Office of the United States Trade Representative says the United States has a trade surplus with Canada.​

Sounds like Wisconsin and Governor Walker. Probably standard for Republicans though.

Also, Chris Cuomo moving to primetime.

Oh, it wasn't the congressional sanctions that were made over a year ago. It was some new fangled meaningless sanctions.

The sanctions, targeting five Russian organizations and 19 individuals, will generally block them from traveling to the United States, freeze any assets in the country and bar American businesses and individuals from doing business with them. Among the organizations sanctioned were the Federal Security Service, the successor to the K.G.B. known by its Russian acronym F.S.B., and Russian military intelligence, known as G.R.U., although they, like a few others, were previously penalized under past actions for the intervention in Ukraine.

One of the worst articles I have ever read: http://www.newsweek.com/russia-will-beat-nasa-mars-and-find-water-moon-says-putin-845988


RUSSIA WILL BEAT NASA TO MARS AND FIND WATER ON THE MOON, SAYS PUTIN

Russia will launch a mission to Mars in 2019 which if successful would beat NASA’s planned exploration of the red planet by a year. Vladimir Putin revealed his country’s space plans during a documentary about the president which was widely shared on social media.

He said: "We are planning unmanned and later manned launches, into deep space, as part of a lunar program and for Mars exploration. The closest mission is very soon, we are planning to launch a mission to Mars in 2019."


"Our specialists will try to make landings on the poles, because there is reason to believe that there can be water there. There, there is progress to be made, studies of other planets, distant space can be started from there,” he said in the film uploaded to Russian social media site vkontakte.
First of all we've been on Mars for over 20 years now with a rover. Second, launching in 2019 makes no f***ing sense as it won't be in a Hohmann launch window so have fun wasting fuel. The only positive to this is with an idiot like Trump in charge maybe he'll give NASA more funds.

I'm a canukistani and this is funny to me(in a sad sense). I know we sell electricity to the States @ 1/3 the price we're charged. I live on a border city and when building my home years ago I remember grade "A" Canadian lumber was 1/2 the price in the U.S. Home depot and Lowes then grade "C" Canadian lumber @ home...
