    That Russian thing, all those suits, the bitter political divide... it's getting out of control. I think Trump could resign and pardon all, he even could get ill because to much pressure (even for his lawyer), or he's gonna get so cornered that he could take very drastic decisions. They should concentrate in govern the country instead, it's getting tiresome. Any thoughts?

    People expected the swamp to give up without a fight?

    Obama and the democrats were neck-deep in sleaze and corruption and many of the attacks on Trump and conservatives are unprecedented (using the apparatus of government against a political opposition).

    More details of how flimsy and invented it all is are gradually coming to light as they continue to just go on digging expeditions.

    We do know that a US president and secretary of state colluded with the Russians, but it wasn't Trump. We know a president paid $billions to terrorists, but it wasn't Trump. We know a president used the IRS and FBI as political tools, but it wasn't Trump.

    People are waking up to the fraud that was Obama and the disaster that he was for the country and the world. Trump shouldn't go anywhere.

    I don't think it's the US politicians that are the ones out of control.

    Loudmouth Trump generally wants to get on with it.

    It's the US media and 'activists' that are hysterical and need to calm down (remember the feminist anti-Trump marches?).

    By all means criticise Trump but do it properly and sensibly.

    I don't think it's the US politicians that are the ones out of control.

    I have to disagree somewhat with that statement. The US Congress has failed to pass a budget on time in 22 YEARS. (That's why the threat of a Government Shutdown has become so commonplace and means almost nothing anymore.)

    Politicians of both parties refuse to compromise and would rather let the Country fail that let the other party get any credit for any accomplishment.

    NOTHING means more to the incumbents than re-election to their cushy position. We have the best politicians that money can buy. Corp American has them all "bought and paid for".

    So what your saying then Simon that Obama and Hillary Clinton colluded with the Russians to foil Hillary's own political campaign ?

    Wow you sure know stuff that most of us dont !

    I mostly ignore the news these days, because its not news, its opinions and speculation. Fox News is the Republican party outlet, all others speak for the Democrats. Actual journalism doesn't exist anymore. The media is the biggest single problem in the country these days, because all they're doing is getting their base all worked up.

  • Finkelstein

    Trump is a rich glossy turd that needs to be flushed out the US political system.

    He was always a unscrupulous lying business tycoon who took that inherent persona into the White House with some of other supporting followers.

    I think most Americans are ashamed and embarrassed of him as the leader of their nation.

    I never did get the beef the USA has with Russia? They fought with them as allies during world war 2. I know they were in competition with stock piling lots of nukes and making missiles and rockets. I really wish human understanding and values keep increasing so as to out date war as a viable option.

    Anyway here is a run down of their relationship presently.


    Russia–United States relations refers to the bilateral relationship between the United States and Russia. The United States and Russia maintain diplomatic and trade relations. The relationship was generally warm under the Russian President Boris Yeltsin (1991–1999) until the NATO bombing of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia[1][2] in the spring of 1999, and has since deteriorated significantly. In 2014, relations greatly strained due to the crisis in Ukraine, Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2015, differences regarding Russian military intervention in the Syrian Civil War, and from the end of 2016 over Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 U.S. elections. Mutual sanctions imposed in 2014 remain in place.......
