Wow, The gaslit US electing a clown should have been a warning to the world, not a template. Shocked

Ukraine election: Comedian Zelensky wins presidency by landslide

  • Ukrainian comedian Volodymyr Zelensky has won a landslide victory in the country's presidential election, exit polls suggest.

    The polls give the political newcomer, who dominated the first round of voting three weeks ago, more than 70% support.

    Mr Zelensky, 41, challenged incumbent president Petro Poroshenko who has admitted defeat.

    The apparent result is being seen as a huge blow to Mr Poroshenko and a rejection of Ukraine's establishment.

    "I will never let you down," Mr Zelensky told celebrating supporters on Sunday.

    "I'm not yet officially the president," he added. "But as a citizen of Ukraine I can say to all countries in the post-Soviet Union: Look at us. Anything is possible!"

Yes, it was a shame that there were so many divisive emotive opinions in those threads, and so much disregard for the facts.

Unlike the Great POTUS who is almost universally admired, respected and loved by all ... present company accepted, I think people are clear on the fact that you and I are still uncommitted, and will remain so, until we have access to a fully unredacted copy of the Mueller Report which reveals that Trump is 100% EXONERATED of colluding with Russia to influence the election, and The Obama Administration and Hillary Clinton are fully investigated, criminal charges brought against them, and they share a cell together.

Then justice will have been done.Thumbs Up

I think you will find that the phrase was only used when it happened to one of her "Great each way chances"... 1,000 times could easily be correct, I would have thought it was more ...Wink

Nobody disobeys my orders.



People who did disobey his orders(all former) and refused to obstruct justice for him and likely go to prison for him, even though he promises to pardon them in a couple of years, if he is still there.

How bizarre was Rudy yesterday on SOTU? These crooks are seriously spinning out of control as Democrats start subpoenaing people and deciding today where they go with this.

Interesting observation that hasn't been reported yet. The Mueller Report in Appendix 4 lists the 14 investigations referred to other jurisdictions that are ongoing. He lists them in alphabetical order with only 2 unredacted, Cohen and Greg Craig(only indicted last week) There are 2 people between between Co and Cr. Cohen's lawyer in Robert Costello who was mentioned in the report as being involved in the pardon offer by Giuliano as the intermediary. His and Fruity Rudy's accounts differ as to who offered whom.

Is Costello one of the C's between the other two and is Rudy the focus of the obstruction investigation? Maybe he is one of the other redacted 12? He is acting like an innocent man and someone whose boss was totally exonerated.

That is exactly his strategy and he hinted at life Presidency yesterday. Afterall his boss Vlad achieved it and he helped Erdogan achieve it.

Dems today are holding a strategy meeting to discuss Impeachment for Trump. Nadler started the ball rolling by subpoenaing McGahan today. Not clear how much privilege will be involved there and whether he will even get to a hearing but Rudy was onto it yesterday attacking him and calling him confused.

Jake Tapper: If McGahan cannot be relied on and the Mueller team are all conflicted Democrats does that mean we should invalidate their no collusion and no finding on obstruction?

Rudy: NO NO NO NO NO.

Speaking of border control, whatever happened to the State of Emergency and the border crisis?

Has it taken a week off for Easter and golf with dear leader? A caravan could be coming any day now and (ab)normal will resume shortly. If there isn't one he will create one.

Looks like Kimmy has bypassed the block and gone straight to the butcher to get this Trump mess sorted out. 

Vlad not to self: Dont send your expensive idiot if you want to get the job done.



North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has left for the Russian city of Vladivostok for his first meeting with president Vladimir Putin, during which the two are expected to discuss sanctions, regional security and Pyongyang’s growing need for food aid. 

Kim "left here by a private train at dawn on Wednesday to visit the Russian Federation," the North's official Korean Central News Agency reported, kicking off a 20-hour journey to the far north-east of his country, where it has a short border with Russia. 

An aide to Mr Putin said the two leaders would focus on the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula but were not planning to make a joint declaration or sign any agreements.

“This visit cannot be seen as a singular event and it has to be looked at in the context of North Korea test-firing some sort of new weapon last week and demanding that the US replace Secretary of State [Mike] Pompeo as Washington’s lead negotiator with the North”, said Stephen Nagy, a senior associate professor of international relations at Tokyo’s International Christian University. 

“This summit is a third pillar that is designed to demonstrate to the US that North Korea has options that allow it to diversify its diplomatic outreach as it tries to break the US sanctions stranglehold”, he said. 

“It’s a strong signal that it has lots of options and that it won’t be forced into a bad deal with the US,” he told The Telegraph. more...

NEWS: President Trump tells The Post in an interview tonight that House Dems should be satisfied w/ the Mueller report and he opposes having aides testify. “There is no reason to go any further, and especially in Congress where it’s very partisan."

An entertaining conversation here:

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/23/opinion/trump-sanders-impeachment.html

I will give you a few tidbits.

Gail: I’ve always nurtured the theory that Trump doesn’t have the mental capacity to collude. You do need a certain amount of organized thinking to conspire.

...

Bret: Speaking of obstruction, the thing I found most interesting about the Mueller report is how often Trump’s advisers wound up obstructing him. Don McGahn, the former White House counsel, refused the president’s demand that he fire Mueller. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein refused a White House request to put out a statement that firing Jim Comey had been his idea. Ditto for a number of other officials who, if they weren’t directly disobeying Trump, seemed to have taken a “Bartleby the Scrivener” approach to his order: They would prefer not to.

Gail: Maybe the best thing about this episode will be the lesson it gives Trump’s team: when in doubt, ignore him completely.

...

Bret: I’ll get to Sanders in a second, but let’s say this about Buttigieg: It helps that he is incredibly bright — the contrast between the guy who learned Norwegian just for fun and the incumbent who hasn’t yet mastered English would be a useful one in a general election. But what really impresses me about Buttigieg is that he’s campaigning as a moderate Midwest problem-solver in a field full of coastal ideologues. I think it’s a no-lose strategy, setting himself up either as a credible candidate if he wins or a highly plausible VP pick if he doesn’t.

As for Bernie: I would never vote for him under any circumstances. I want Trump gone as much as anyone, but Sanders is a bridge too far as far as I’m concerned. I guess it would mean a Bill Weld vote for me, or whoever is the least feckless third-party candidate.

...

Bret: Well, this is why I hope and pray that Sanders isn’t the nominee. We already have one major political party in the United States that has jumped off the cliff, morally and ideologically speaking. Why should I participate in helping the second one go over it also?

There are many Democrats I’d gladly vote for just to get rid of Trump, even if I disagree with many or even most of their policies. But I find Bernie not much better, morally speaking, than Trump, and that’s to say nothing about his extreme domestic and foreign policy views.

Gail: Morally speaking?

Bret: Anyone who said there’s a virtue to bread lines, as he did, or who praised the Sandinistas in Nicaragua, as he did, or who went to the U.S.S.R. only so that he could admire the chandeliers in the Moscow subways, as he did, isn’t going to get my vote. Period. You have to have been utterly blind to what the Soviet Union and communism were all about to have taken those positions, and by the time Sanders came of age there was no excuse for ignorance or naïve idealism. And I’m not talking about Stalinist Russia, which Sanders did and does condemn. I mean the kind of regime apparatus whose East German version was accurately portrayed in “The Lives of Others.”
