Senate Armed Services chairman lets loose blistering critique of Trump and Putin meeting

The full statement from McCain appears below:

“Today’s press conference in Helsinki was one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory. The damage inflicted by President Trump’s naiveté, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is difficult to calculate. But it is clear that the summit in Helsinki was a tragic mistake. “President Trump proved not only unable, but unwilling to stand up to Putin. He and Putin seemed to be speaking from the same script as the president made a conscious choice to…

The world of cute lambs and the tuna melt panini.

A story about a dog who likes tuna melt, a cute new lamb, and two good reviews.

Jim Webster

006

It has been said that the world is a magical place full of people waiting to be offended by something. This is probably true, but today, perhaps by accident, I might not offend anybody at all. I know it seems unlikely but in an infinite universe pretty well anything should be possible.

So this morning another hogg lambed. Working backwards on our fingers she wasn’t technically anyway near any of the tups when the lamb was conceived. So how had she managed it? All I can say is that she isn’t the first young lady who has wandered in shyly carrying a baby and hoping against hope that the overall atmosphere of cuteness will stop people asking difficult and embarrassing questions. So anyway the proud mum has brought her offspring into a parched world which is somewhat at odds with the world the other lambs arrived into. Instead of the…

GOP US Senator John McCain Opposes President Trump’s Meeting With President Putin

What Senator McCain thinks about the Trump-Putin meeting.

Gronda Morin

The Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov stated on a RT interview that it was the US republican President Donald Trump who made the request for the one-on-one meet between him and the Russian President Vladimir Putin, and so Russia is accommodating his request. Although President Putin speaks English, he prefers to negotiate in his native language and so he will have a translator.  This means that President Trump should be accompanied by his own translator who will take notes which will not be available to the American public.

Remember that this meeting with President Putin was initiated by President Trump during the phone call where he called the Russian leader to congratulate him on his election win, against the instructions by all his advisers not to do this. He is giving President Putin a win right at the start by allowing for this summit which elevates him on the world…

Friend or Foe???

What on earth is President Trump thinking of.?

Filosofa's Word

Friend:a person whom one knows and with whom one has a bond of mutual affection, typically exclusive of sexual or family relations.

Foe:an enemy or opponent.syp-v-spy


Shouldn’t be too hard to tell the difference, should it?  Sure, sometimes we think somebody is a friend, only to learn later that they weren’t at all, but most of us are pretty fair judges of character and we don’t often make serious mistakes in choosing our friends.  Donald Trump is the exception to that rule.  But then, Donald  Trump is the exception to most every rule in the book, so why are we surprised?

On Saturday, Trump was interviewed by CBS Evening News anchor Jeff Glor in Scotland.  The full interview will be broadcast on Monday, but a few snippets have been released. Asked who he thinks is the biggest foe the U.S. has right now, he replied …

The “president” is a Son-of-a-Bitch

Abominable behavior abroad.

Filosofa's Word

Let’s start with a simple question:  If you are invited to visit a friend, and your own house is in a shambles, dirty because you haven’t cleaned it in months, are you likely to harshly criticize your friend’s housekeeping skills when her house if nearly immaculate?  And to do so publicly, announcing to the neighborhood at large?  I think not.  Why, because you are sensible, kind and truthful.

Who does Donald Trump think he is?  He was, though only by the minority and not the majority, elected to be the president of the United States.  He was not elected Prime Minister of the UK.  He was not elected President of NATO.  He was only elected to be the president (no caps) of what is fast becoming the most despised nation on the face of the earth.

I won’t even bother addressing just now his abhorrent performance – yes, that is…
