Apparently it's way larger than last week's one in Texas.

 

If God's angry at Americans maybe because they elected Trump, seeing it's only going for Republican states?

 

 

 

 

Im sure he will find a way to blame Obama for it and repeal something else.

He was quick to claim his work when he reported job numbers climbing. Apparently these numbers are now going down again - let's see if he blames Obama...

In a similar vein, I have been seeing reports about how Russian trolls bought Facebook advertising.

"We don't allow inauthentic accounts on Facebook, and as a result, we have since shut down the accounts and pages we identified that were still active."

 

What?  We should trust what we see on FB?  

 

What goes on in people's heads that they believe this crap? I still have an active FB account in the name of a dog we had - that died 5 years ago. Only thing that could make Zuckerberg and Co think it's "inauthentic"  is a relatively low number of photos of cats doing stupid things compared with the FB average.

Surely all those pages giving free business class trips around the world to celebrate QANTAS 75th anniversary or giving 100 iPhones because Apple had a great year are legit?

The dossier has everything to be accurate.

 

 

Except a dump of the "golden shower" spy camera shots.

 

God help Putin if he authorised that release.  A competent regime in the US to replace the global disgrace of Trumpism is his worst nightmare.

What makes you think that would be Trump's downfall? It's a bit disgusting and an utterly childish, vulgar gesture, but it's not illegal and Trump has no sense of shame. As far as his supporters go, it would be either a case of 'yeah, he's sticking it to Obama, go Trump!' or just another thing that Jesus wouldn't do to be somehow completely overlooked by the crazy evangelicals because abortions.

 

Putin could personally host a screening of the entire video and I doubt it would be enough to end Trump. Unless it turns out to show he has other tiny parts to go with his tiny hands and lots of people laugh about it.

Absolute proof that act took place would transgress the border from toleration and acceptance by his loyalists of his known depravity because "we all do it" (or did it "in the locker room" apparently - we all grope, perv, belittle women because of well... just because) to what would be considered "sexual perversion".   Nobody likes a pervert.

The pee tape part may be the most salacious portion of the dossier, but it's not necessarily the most incriminating. Although it does go to show that the Russian government has Kompromat over Trump.

 


I'd rate the access to Russian oil in return for favours as being of more interest to the US public, and more likely to bring his downfall.

Trump's new FBI director has ties to Russian oil apparently:

https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2017/06/08/trump-new-fbi-director-chris-wray-russian-ties-rosneft-gazprom-column/102603214/

19% of gazprom is a lot. Seems like way overkill for bribery. Unless they thought he was richer than he is lol ; ).

I would expect these dossier allegations to be credible simply because the dossier was written by an experienced ex-spy guy. Whoever paid for that got their money's worth in credible allegations. But credible is not the same as true and may be well crafted but untrue.
