I love to see Trump & Putin lovey dovey.
Brings back the WW2 memories of the maps where Stalin started to hammer Hitler.      Our Hero in that part of the world was the Russian Tenacity.

Of course the "Yanks " were our favourites and I loved the "Player" cigs they were generous with to us Kids.
Britain did a wonderful job , with standing the blitz and the onslaught.

The effect it all had on we of such tender age.   Hard to explain but I still cringe when I hear or see the word German .   I'm still at war with them .
AND JAP ,TOJO,      we won't go there.

Trump won in 2016 by winning 3 states by a total of 26,000 votes despite being smashed in the popular vote. You can't say that even one state being rigged doesn't affect the outcome. It will be sorted before 2020.

Felon disenfranchisement in Florida


In the State of Florida, persons convicted of a felony are stripped of their voting rights in addition to other sentencing. This restriction lasts for life, and the right can only be restored through special permissions from both the governor and the state clemency board.[1] This practice is known as felony disenfranchisement and it is a common punishment across the United States, being law in 48 states (not practiced in Vermont and Maine)[2]. However, Florida is one of only twelve states that bans convicted felons from voting post-sentence and one of only four that maintains that ban for life.

Statistics (2016)

  • 10.43% of the Florida population is disenfranchised[8]
  • 1,686,318 total Floridians are disenfranchised[8]
  • Florida has the most disenfranchised citizens in the United States[8]
  • Florida has the highest disenfranchisement rate in the United States[8]
  • 23.3% of black voters in Florida can’t vote because of felony disenfranchisement[8]

Not just Florida tlaz, 3 million Americans are disenfranchised because they are convicted felons, overwhelmingly black people and as minor crimes get you a conviction in many states, it is just a policy to remove black and other minority voting rights. Several states however have passed laws by executive order to reverse this and there is a major movement to overturn these laws across the board Florida is one state moving to change with it's Supreme Court hearing arguments about the constitutionality of this disenfranchisement. In December they will vote in the legislature to restore voting rights.

Probably not. He won't need any help. The Dems are frazzled. No one believes the Blue Wave will occur in 2018. Everything Dems do is now called a moral victory. Avenatti just threw his hat in the ring with a new slogan "we stay low" disputing Michelle O'Bummers moral high ground slogan.

You truly are anti-yank aren't you? Why don't you just admit it?

Spring is nearly here maxie, the new 3yos will be emerging soon and the Roosters will have another trophy in the cabinet. We have been patient with ours, only one start from 9 horses at 2. I think it will pay dividends. I wont have time to save America from the Tangerine Traitor and the Dotard Crime Family soon. Mr Mueller has it well in hand though. Clap

Maybe a bit of time. Wink

With Trump's Cohenoscopy about to get under way in SDNY and Manafort's ''real'' trial about to get under way in September there is still plenty to follow. 

How about this Turkey distraction? Is Ergodan starting to waiver on holding firm with his story on Flynn and Rudy? Getting too close to the Mullahs because they are more stable business partners than Trump?

Kimmy's Foreign Minister had a nice visit to Tehran this week. Now that Trump has stamped Kimmy a great world leader(at no cost) he is getting out and about. Strong rumours on the peninsula a one on one with Vlad could happen next month. Trying to make Donny jealous, hanging around with his BFF behind his back. 

Bring on the mid terms eh Shammy. We need a distraction from all this Trumpian chaos. You better hope the economy doesn't start exploding under pressure from overheating before November. Dont worry, the Fed has America's back,

Remind me again why you give a fudge about who yanks elect as President? We certainly don't care who your PM is. I can't for life of me understand why someone would devote as much time, energy, and animosity denigrating a political figure you can't even vote against. My only conclusion is that you are nuts.

Ever heard of the expression ''America sneezes, the world gets a cold'' Shammy?

While we have moved a fair way towards diversifying our interests to inoculate ourselves, we have never experienced this level of incompetence, destruction of alliances or self destruction of itself than by this idiot you elected. We have no idea how our trade situation goes under him, where our military is committed, or what our situation is with your intelligence agencies being discredited and gutted, and whether it is in a greater interest or just the self preservation and self enrichment of the Trump family and the new American oligarchy.

We have a vested interest in you making better decisions next time around.

I'm sure you've probably heard of them , but if you Google Smoot-Hawley trade sanctions that were implemented in 1930 it will give you an idea of the damage they can do . 

Most economists will say the Smoot-hawley sanctions definitely deepened but may even have caused what could have been a stock market crash with recession and turned it into the great depression .

And YES ..   Look at what we had to do to save the Yanks in WW2

     The Yank haters deny there was a WW2...    Or a 9/11 or a moon

If The America's economy collapses we learn Chinese.   To use in their Labor camps.

Oh, you poor things. So we yanks are suppose to continue subsidizing OZ and the rest of the free world, even if it is not in our best interest? You are ignorant. We yanks are fed up playing nice to the all the so called allied bottom feeding nations that use us to carry their economic and military burdens. That is why Trump got elected and will get reelected.    So in simple terms, this thread is all about your anxiety. If anxiety is the problem take sedatives.

By the way, Trump didn't get us into the wars you mentioned. As usual your animosity leads you to exaggerate.

Now that we know anxiety is the force behind this loathsome thread, beyond OZ since Trump was elected what terrible things have happened to the world that is worth you crying about? Terrible things now? Be honest.

Not to worry. We won't let the Chinese have you. OZ is a tourist hotspot for we yanks. Besides where would we get all these great golfers who compete in our PGA? I would be bored to death on Saturdays and Sundays having to watch soccer. Besides since Trump's threats of tariffs the EU and Mexico are dealing. The Canadians, since screwing up with the Saudis, have admitted they have no friends and will be begging to deal. The Japanese and South Koreans have their trade reps in DC dealing now. Sanctions are driving currencies in Russia and Turkey down. The Iranian economy is near collapse. Venezuelans are suffering with a failed economy and new US sanctions are in place to bring its dictator down.   Sanctions are still in place on NOK and things are quiet. No doubt China can't keep devaluing its currency much longer as the Asian stock markets have become increasingly volatile and Wall Street is consistently remaining at record highs. Despite the fake news and what anxious PT posts, our economy is doing well and yanks are optimistic.

We have your back too. The US Navy and Air Force are currently challenging sea and airspace along the Chinese militarized archipelago. Our first female USMC infantry platoon commander is heading to OZ in the very near future. That should give an old guy like you a hard on at the very least.

Start an AAA (Anxiety & Animosity Anonymous) for the anti-Trumps and anti-yanks. Additional sedatives for PT might help also.

Fact-checking Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s media blitz

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 28-year-old self-described “democratic socialist” who unexpectedly toppled a top Democratic incumbent in the primary for New York’s 14th Congressional District, is a sudden media star even though she has not been elected to Congress. (She has no real competition in the general election.)

With celebrity comes scrutiny. Ocasio-Cortez has come under fire for dismissing concerns about the anticipated costs of her proposals and offering too-glib answers.

For instance, in an appearance on CNN on Monday, when challenged on the costs of government-financed health care, she answered: “Why aren’t we incorporating the cost of all the funeral expenses of those who died because they can’t afford access to health care? That is part of the cost of our system.”

Huh?

Several readers have asked us to vet some of her claims and, because of summer vacation schedules, we’ve been a bit slower to follow up than our fact-checking colleagues. So here’s a quick roundup of some of her recent eyebrow-raising claims, though to be fair to Ocasio-Cortez, the average member of Congress might easily make many bloopers over the course of so many live interviews.

As is our practice, we do not award Pinocchios in roundups. But we will be watching Ocasio-Cortez closely as she continues her media blitz. A spokesman for her campaign did not respond to a request for comment.

“Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs. Unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week and can barely feed their family.”
— interview on PBS’s “Firing Line,” July 13, 2018

This is an example of sweeping language — “everyone has two jobs” — that can get a rookie politician in trouble. She may personally know people who have two jobs, but the data is pretty clear that this statement is poppycock.

First of all, Bureau of Labor Statistics data shows that the percentage of people working two jobs has actually declined since the Great Recession — and been relatively steady at around 5 percent since 2010. The percentage bounced around a bit but it was as low as 4.7 percent in October 2017 and was 5.2 percent in the July jobs report, the most recent available. That hardly adds up to “everyone.”

Please Mr P, CNNPT likes to keep this a fact free thread, and will generally ignore or deflect any sensible factual contribution that are at odds with the FAKE NEWS ...

<p -elm-loc="1" style="-sizing: border-; margin: 4px 0px 18px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 19.2px; vertical-align: line; : transparent; font-family: Georgia, Times, "Times New Roman", serif; color: rgb17, 17, 17;">Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 28-year-old self-described “democratic socialist” who unexpectedly toppled a top Democratic incumbent in the primary for New York’s 14th Congressional District, is a sudden media star even though she has not been elected to Congress. (She has no real competition in the general election.)

<p -elm-loc="2" style="-sizing: border-; margin: 4px 0px 18px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 19.2px; vertical-align: line; : transparent; font-family: Georgia, Times, "Times New Roman", serif; color: rgb17, 17, 17;">With celebrity comes scrutiny. Ocasio-Cortez has come under fire for dismissing concerns about the anticipated costs of her proposals and offering too-glib answers.

<p -elm-loc="3" style="-sizing: border-; margin: 4px 0px 18px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 19.2px; vertical-align: line; : transparent; font-family: Georgia, Times, "Times New Roman", serif; color: rgb17, 17, 17;">For instance, in an appearance on CNN on Monday, when challenged on the costs of government-financed health care, she answered: “Why aren’t we incorporating the cost of all the funeral expenses of those who died because they can’t afford access to health care? That is part of the cost of our system.”

<p -elm-loc="4" style="-sizing: border-; margin: 4px 0px 18px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 19.2px; vertical-align: line; : transparent; font-family: Georgia, Times, "Times New Roman", serif; color: rgb17, 17, 17;">Huh?

<p -elm-loc="5" style="-sizing: border-; margin: 4px 0px 18px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 19.2px; vertical-align: line; : transparent; font-family: Georgia, Times, "Times New Roman", serif; color: rgb17, 17, 17;">Several readers have asked us to vet some of her claims and, because of summer vacation schedules, we’ve been a bit slower to follow up than our fact-checking colleagues. So here’s a quick roundup of some of her recent eyebrow-raising claims, though to be fair to Ocasio-Cortez, the average member of Congress might easily make many bloopers over the course of so many live interviews.

<p -elm-loc="6" style="-sizing: border-; margin: 4px 0px 18px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 19.2px; vertical-align: line; : transparent; font-family: Georgia, Times, "Times New Roman", serif; color: rgb17, 17, 17;">As is our practice, we do not award Pinocchios in roundups. But we will be watching Ocasio-Cortez closely as she continues her media blitz. A spokesman for her campaign did not respond to a request for comment.

<p -elm-loc="7" style="-sizing: border-; margin: 4px 0px 18px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 19.2px; vertical-align: line; : transparent; font-family: Georgia, Times, "Times New Roman", serif; color: rgb17, 17, 17;"><strong style="-sizing: border-; margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; vertical-align: line; : transparent;"><em style="-sizing: border-; margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; vertical-align: line; : transparent;">“Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs. Unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week and can barely feed their family.”<br style="-sizing: border-;"><strong style="-sizing: border-; margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; vertical-align: line; : transparent;">— interview on PBS’s “Firing Line,” July 13, 2018

<p -elm-loc="8" style="-sizing: border-; margin: 4px 0px 18px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 19.2px; vertical-align: line; : transparent; font-family: Georgia, Times, "Times New Roman", serif; color: rgb17, 17, 17;">This is an example of sweeping language — “everyone has two jobs” — that can get a rookie politician in trouble. She may personally know people who have two jobs, but the data is pretty clear that this statement is poppycock.

<p -elm-loc="9" style="-sizing: border-; margin: 4px 0px 18px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 19.2px; vertical-align: line; : transparent; font-family: Georgia, Times, "Times New Roman", serif; color: rgb17, 17, 17;">First of all, Bureau of Labor Statistics data shows that the percentage of people working two jobs has actually declined since the Great Recession — and been relatively steady at around 5 percent since 2010. The percentage bounced around a bit but it was as low as 4.7 percent in October 2017 and was 5.2 percent in the July jobs report, the most recent available. That hardly adds up to “everyone.”

   She is such a joke. Hasn't even won the NY congressional district general election and the panicking Dems have her out on national stump with Bernie Sanders endorsing candidates, none of whom have won.

Ozzies are knocking at the PGA Championship door. Don't you know they appreciate Trump's new tax legislation.
