America under President Trump


betsy

Recommended Posts

The Republican Governor of Maryland says that a congressman from his state called and begged for assistance. He had troops ready to help assist but needed Federal Authorization. 

After an hour he finally got a call. Not from POTUS, Not from the VEEP, Not from the Secretary of Defence. . . The Secretary of the Army finally asked for help almost 2 hours later!!!!!

Trump allowed this to happen and was happy about about it.

Socialism with a capitalist twist as well. There lies a crucial difference between the two regimes. Hitler supported private ownership and the great companies of Germany as long as they served his purposes. One great lesson from Nazi Germany, and something we should bear in mind when dealing with Xi and the gang, is that capitalism and totalitarianism are not incompatible. 

China does the "Art of the Deal" better than Trump ever did. 

The Belt and Road initiative has China trading infrastructure projects for natural resources all over the world.

Sure...but you know as well as I you can not equate the Republicans with the Nazis. Anyone who does is unaware of what the Nazis actually did.

No, just talking about Stalin and Hitler in that post.

What happened first as farce this week may return as tragedy. American democracy will face far more competent domestic enemies than Trump. 

 

Indeed. One might long for the order and sanity of Trump...compared to you know...what's behind door #2.

However...if I see you wearing a Hammer & Sickle...or Che T-Shirt...I might assume you really do like Communism.

 

You know...like this apparent Trump supporter that broke into the Capitol.

Now...call me mad...I don't think many...if any...Trump supporters get the hammer & sickle tattoo.

But...you guys have ALL the answers.

Entire armies of T-34s will do that. But you had to shift gears with a hammer half the time.

A lot of good a single Tiger tank can do against dozens of Sherman or T-34 tanks along with Air Superiority.

Take it to the History Club at the bottom. I'll talk tanks with you all day.

I also recall Trump supporters questioning these folks...asking them their names.

"Who are you, sir?" Repeated...no answer.

One of them then started spouting anti-Semitic stuff over a bull horn...

My conclusion is that the Trump march had a sizable 5th column of ANTIFA types dressed as apparent Trump supporters...as was their stated plan if one recalls.

With what evidence do you reach this conclusion? 

So far, the only people that have been identified have obvious Trump leanings. 

A lot of work for ANTIFA members to create a Trump persona online just to start a riot to make MAGA Nation look bad. 

I suppose you have to admire their long game. :rolleyes:

I'm not YOUR dog.

Those are my conclusions...you have others that I don't ask you to justify.

Also, since we're talking WW2. The Nazi's blamed the Communists for the burning of the Reichstag.

So this game plan is certainly not original. 

 

What exactly are you suggesting?
