    I think a lot of people SPECIALLY AMERICANS DONT KNOW WHAT KGB STAND FOR. Trump has a bussiness with Russia, still have and is allowed to continue to do his bussines in America. Who is supporting him? who is helping him . Is he untouchable ? ???Come on !!!!! question why why they didn't investigate Trump before electing him President . They always run a history check on the candidates for a President .

    What's with the reporter toward the end of this clip. Sounding all nervous about answering what he really wants to say. And I know he is not the only one in that room who feel the same way. No one in the media asks or point out trumps lies after he speaks right to his face. That's why trumps so powerful.

    I would not put it beyond one of Trump's dwindling number of henchmen to burn down the Reichstag, in order to "justify" declaring "national emergency" (Stephen Miller as Himmler? - an extrapolation not necessarily far beyond ridiculous ). (FWIW, Cohen currently bears a striking facial resemblance to Speer at the Nuremberg Trail - Google the photos) Moralische Feigling... und Versager...und Verräter (any characteristics sound familiar?) Footnote: Adolf was also "democratically anointed" Shall Robert S. Mueller be our Robert H. Jackson?

    This wall isn’t just a project. If the wall is made, it will undermine the very ideals our nation, nay, humanity itself was founded upon. Unity. A wall is a symbol of division. The wall will become the face of a country. A country founded on equality and freedom, cutting itself off from the breath of air of another country.

    “Oh the world will sing of an English king a thousand years from now, and not because he made some laws or had that lofty brow. While bonny good King Richard leads the great crusade he’s on, we’ll all have to slave away for that good-for-nothing John. Incredible as he is inept, whenever the history books are kept, they’ll call him “The Phony King of England”. A pox on the phony king of England!”

    Why can't we fix the asylum process by having people apply through US satellite/pseudo-embassies within their own country, attend a court hearing where they must supply evidence of their claim and get granted/denied based on the testimonies they can prove?
    ..It would also make the process more fair having representatives and officials to such agencies stationed there for appointed terms, given that they can get first-hand experience of the realities faced in those nations, as geography does tend to be a constraint.
    If they have their asylum granted, the means of travel should still be left up to them, so as to encourage taking refuge among the safer neighboring nations rather than presumptuously trekking to the US for opportunities they mistakenly believe are guaranteed.
    We can rent facilities in the foreign nation, grant powers through their own judges to uphold the process and pay their citizens whom are selected to take on much of these tasks so that it is easier to find candidates that know and understand the culture.
    I think it would also serve a latent benefit, as the growing number of asylum claims in any nation can be reported to their leadership, which very well may fill them with enough envy to do something about their own people they govern so that they aren't being shown up by our efforts.
    I want this as part of immigration reform to complement our efforts in strengthening our border security.

    Not much has been written about the Ibogaine Effect as a serious factor in the presidential decision-making process, but word has leaked out that some of Trump’s top advisers called in a Brazilian doctor who was said to be treating the President with ‘some kind of strange drug'. “It was hard to take the talk seriously,” one reporter wrote-“until I heard about the appearance of a mysterious Brazilian doctor. That was the key.”

    Dems that approved the wall for 39 years are the Holdup, they are the hostage takers like Jimmy Carter who let 52 hostages Rot for 444 days. Now that my friends is the longest Government Hostage situation.
    7 words and two digits and the paycheck for 800,000 government workers will roll.
    Nancy and Chuck just say as you have before,
    “We will fund 5.5 billion for the wall. “
    Simple as that. They have been playing political games for the last 39 years with our Lives, our paychecks for immigration policy.
