kingdragonfly: With Barbara Bush's recent demise, Trump move reminds me that the Republicans never learn from history.

We are blessed in New Zealand that we actually moved out of Trump's, and fellow middle Americans, 1950's mindset.

White Evangelicals Can't Quit Donald Trump

 

New polling finds that their support for the president remains strikingly high. But are they mortgaging the future of the faith?

 


Even with the recent allegations of infidelity - with adult-film star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal, whose respective lawsuits have become tangled in the Russia investigation - white evangelical Protestants are showing no signs of a sunset on their support.

 

By a margin of 3 to 1, or 69 percent versus 23 percent, white evangelical Protestants who identify with or lean toward the Republican Party say they would prefer Trump over another candidate to be the GOP nominee for president in 2020.

Ambassador switch shows Australia is a second-class ally under Donald Trump, says Kevin Rudd

 

 

Former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has slammed the United States' decision to withdraw its nominated ambassador to Australia.

 

The Trump administration plans to overturn its nomination of Admiral Harry Harris as the next United States ambassador to Australia, putting him forward as envoy to South Korea instead ahead of Donald Trump's planned meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

 

The position of US ambassador to Australia has been vacant for more than 18 months.

 

 

 

 

DISCLOSURE: As an Australian resident in NZ, I share Rudd's indignation.

Who honestly believes America would go to war to protect Australia or New Zealand? The only potential adversaries capable of projecting power this far south are China and Russia, who are both nuclear armed. The USA is not going to risk a nuke falling on DC for us. If push comes to shove, we're on our own.

Australia does have a lot of uranium. But NZ is s**t out of luck.

In a big shoot-out, if it's not finished in 30 minutes, China would love to come to NZ's aid. In exchange they'd want military sites, and mineral and fishing rights.

AMERICANS STARTLED BY SPECTACLE OF PRESIDENT WHO CAN SPEAK ENGLISH

 

 

 

 

 

 

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Americans who were watching television on Wednesday morning witnessed the startling spectacle of an English-speaking President, viewers have confirmed.

 

All of the major cable news networks interrupted their regularly scheduled programs to cover the phenomenon, as a man who was identified as “President” spoke in complete, grammatically correct English sentences with no visible sign of strain or discomfort.

 

Just minutes into the telecast, thousands of viewers called the networks to inquire if they were witnessing a hoax.

 

“I couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” Carol Foyler, a viewer in Akron, Ohio, said. “It had to be special effects or something.”

 

While the spectacle might have appeared jarring to many, cable news insiders reported that the networks had in fact aired several hundred speeches by an English-speaking President between the years 2009 and 2017.

Donald Trump's lawyer says he will invoke Fifth Amendment and decline to testify in Stormy Daniels case

 

Donald Trump's personal attorney acknowledges that FBI agents seized information on porn star during raids earlier this month

 

 

Donald Trump’s personal attorney has said he will invoke his Fifth Amendment rights and decline to testify in a civil case brought by porn star Stormy Daniels.

 

Citing an “ongoing criminal investigation” that saw the FBI raid his office and home earlier this month, Michael Cohen said he would do so "with all proceedings in this case".

 

"Pleading the fifth", as it is known, allows people to invoke the fifth amendment to the US constitution, which protects Americans from being legally compelled to testify against themselves in a criminal case.

 

 

Trump has several times publicly criticized people who "took the fifth".

 

Political suicide? I hope so.  wink

Trump is true to form.

Usually only mobsters "take the fifth" Here's an expert's opinion

.

If found guilty, US judges tend to throw the book at anyone "taking the fifth," invoking the maximum punitive sentences, as a warning to others.

Thanks to the "tough on crime" conservatives, the US is not somewhere you want the maximum sentence.

That seems unlikely.
