Bannon Suggests Trump Defund Robert Mueller's Investigation

  • Published on Nov 3, 2017
  • Just because Steve Bannon was let go as White House chief strategist doesn't mean he can't keep giving the President terrible ideas.

    If only we had a president that acted and looked presidential verses one who is being presidential(like Trump). I can name about a half dozen personal things or flaws I see in Trump that I don't like, but I see where his experience and knowledge of business and his passion for America is far greater than his negatives. Skip all the insults about looks and personal life and let's take a test after his term is over and do the grading. I had this same attitude with Obama even when family and friends were knocking him before he ever took a step inside the White House. "Give the guy a chance" was my motto. Trump's horn blowing and need for attention might rub "me" the wrong way but the effect he is having on America is far better. To have people working, feeling of having a purpose and hope means far more to me than his hair, hat or how he speaks to others.
    This walk softly and carry a big stick is bologna. You carry a big stick and don't conceal it. When it comes to taking care of America first, the feelings of our allies or enemies and how they feel doesn't concern me. We can play nice but that only got us a 804,000,000,000 deficit. There is nice and then there is just plane stupid. The need of many out-weight those of the few, or the one. Forget about the 1% or the Hollywood stars, I care more about the majority and how they are doing. Majority= People of all colors and how happy they are. Hollywood? Is a joke and pretend they are better people than most. Their words and opinions equate to more than ours. Just how many are upset Hillary didn't win? Please get real and next time, try to support a person who is capable of doing the job and not just looking the part or "acting". At least we will not hear Trump going on an apology tour and tell all the other nations how awful we are and ashamed he is of us. Obama? 2 terms to divide the country and he could of done it one. Got a Nobel prize for....? shortly after becoming President?...Really? That sure dilutes the passion in trying to better yourself when you are given something and not earned. Obama was a sissy and coward which knew nothing about business.

    The House Intelligence Committee on Monday released the full transcript of former Trump campaign adviser #CarterPage's testimony before the panel last week, portions of which support details in an explosive collection of memos outlining alleged collusion between the campaign and Moscow during the election. Page revealed during his testimony that he met with both members of Russia's presidential administration and with the head of investor relations at the state-owned Russian oil giant Rosneft during his trip to Moscow last July. He also congratulated members of the Trump campaign's foreign policy team on July 14 for their "excellent work" on the "Ukraine amendment" - a reference to the Trump campaign's decision to "intervene" to water down a proposed amendment to the GOP's Ukraine platform. The original amendment proposed that the GOP commit to sending "lethal weapons" to the Ukrainian army to fend off Russian aggression. But it was ultimately altered to say "provide appropriate assistance" before it was included in the party's official platform. The dossier alleges that the campaign "agreed to sideline" the issue of Russia's invasion of Crimea and interference in eastern Ukraine in exchange for dirt on #HillaryClinton. Page also also revealed that Trump campaign adviser #SamClovis had asked him to sign a non-disclosure agreement upon joining the campaign - and that he discussed his July Moscow trip with Clovis both before he went and after he returned. Clovis has come under intense scrutiny over his correspondence with another early Trump foreign policy adviser, #GeorgePapadopoulos, who recently pleaded guilty to lying to federal agents about his contact with Russia-linked foreign nationals.
    Papadopoulos was told in April by a Kremlin-linked professor that Russia had dirt on Clinton in the form of "thousands" of emails, and he emailed Clovis several times during the election. 😏😏😏😏😏😏😏😏😏😏😏😏😏😏

    I joined the army during OIF. I was trained to kill strangers with my bare hands to secure President Cheney's personal petroleum investments. I hate Drumpf more. Albeit not much. But Drumpf somehow managed to lower Dubya's standards in empathy, human decency, compassion, and intellegence. Dubya AT LEAST can blame the obvious heavy alcoholism. Drumpf doesn't drink! He is the epitome of every American stereotype in one. No wonder other countries hate our culture.

    You are a very angry, bitter, and mean human being. Maybe your delusion that it's the fault of a President you and others are so broken is a cover for your anti social behavior. Truth is often deemed to be blunt, rude, and to the point, which is why so few make it their friend.
