'Jesus loves trump. 'God chose trump.' 'trump was delivered to us from God.'

He didn't sing a single song, or hymn, during the service.

You imagine him at Christmastime singing songs kind of like Jesus in South Park, "Joy to the world, for I am born, let Earth receive me." Except maybe with added yugeness.

So U.S. had authorities arrest the CFO of Huawei in Canada and are having her extradited here to face questioning. The speculation that its because the U.S. us accusing Huawei of going against sanctions and trading with Iran.

No good will come of this. China may (probably) retaliate against U.S. nationals over there that are executives in companies. Its also causing the markets to fall.

So much winning! Are ya'll tired of the winning yet?
Our trade deficit was just announced at being at a record high, both with China and the EU. The tariffs pretty much killed GM, too, and of course those farmers that put Trump into office in the first gott-damned place. But as long as they're not getting screwed as badly as the browns and blacks, they'll vote for four more years of that s***. :smash::yburnt:

Welp, Trump is melting down pretty hard on twitter right now. Can't wait to see what it's about.

The NRA and Trump Campaign Appeared to Use the Exact Same Media Consultant to Coordinate Their 2016 Campaign Ads, Which Is Not Legal
The Trump campaign and the National Rifle Association appear to have illegally coordinated their ad buys during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to an investigation published Thursday from the nonprofit gun-related news organization the Trace and Mother Jones magazine . The coordination wasn’t even subtle, it was just done out in the open and filed with the Federal Elections Commission and the Federal Communications Commission, according to the report. The NRA dumped $30 million into Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, making it Trump’s largest independent conservative group booster. During the run-up to Election Day, the Trump campaign and the NRA bought and placed millions of dollars’ worth of strikingly similar targeted ads using what amounts functionally to the exact same media firm using two different firm names, Red Eagle and American Media & Advocacy Group (AMAG), that are run by the same people.​

Which is documentary proof of collusion with Russia, given that the NЯA was also receiving funding from them. I get the feeling we're going to be hearing about her emails in 3... 2...

Gotta secure those boarders! If you happen to have anyone living with you, secure your boarders right now!



Trump completely unhinged on twitter and it is hilarious. He knows the Mueller report is a lie, but hasn't seen it yet, but already has an 80 page response to it. Yeah ok...

How would you have a response to something that was fake to begin with? :wink:

Would be quite the bombshell, but highly unlikely.

Pretty much any response to a Trump tweet is a response to something that was fake to begin with.

Tillerson says he often had to tell Trump that his directive 'violates the law'
Rex Tillerson gave a blistering assessment of his time serving as President Donald Trump's secretary of state in a rare public appearance, calling the commander-in-chief "undisciplined."​
Tillerson told CBS News' Bob Schieffer at an event in Houston Wednesday night that he had never met Trump until the day he was asked to be secretary of state, and described how the pair were quickly at loggerheads once they began working together.​
"So often, the president would say here's what I want to do and here's how I want to do it, and I would have to say to him, 'Mr. President I understand what you want to do but you can't do it that way. It violates the law,'" Tillerson said.​

Mueller's team interviewed John Kelly

White House chief of staff John Kelly was interviewed by special counsel Robert Mueller’s team in recent months, three people with knowledge of the matter told CNN.

Kelly responded to a narrow set of questions from special counsel investigators after White House lawyers initially objected to Mueller’s request to do the interview earlier this summer, the sources said.

Why we've been talking about Kelly today: Kelly is widely expected to leave his position in the coming days and is no longer on speaking terms with President Donald Trump, CNN reported earlier Friday.

Kelly is the latest high-ranking White House official known to provide information for Mueller’s investigation, though his interview marks a departure of sorts since Kelly didn’t join the White House until July 2017. Most of the dozens of other interviews have been with people who were associated with the Trump campaign, were part of the transition or served in the early part of the administration.

So to review, relevant and discrete (not discreet) Russia related matters *CORE* to the investigation became known to him because of his regular contact with executives of the TЯump Organization, and additional information regarding contacts with the White House in 2017-18 (almost certainly the obstruction portion of this bungling).
