    Default Trump about to lose two of his advisers

    Gen Flynn and Kellyanne Conway both have major violations in just the first three weeks. Will Jeff Sessions even look at what they did? No of course not because the law is simply not more important than loyalty to Trump.

    Those being a "major violation" (in leftist hysteria and drama), how do you view not enforcing immigration law on the books, which "stand down" on enforcement facilitates terrorists entering our country. . .and who is liable for that?

    gonna be a long eight years....I can't imagine living every day in perpetual outrage. Amazing.

    By the way:

    Prominent Americans in and out of government are so frequently in communication with foreign officials that singling out one individual — particularly one poised for a top White House job — would invite charges of political persecution. Former U.S. officials also said aggressive enforcement would probably discourage appropriate contact. Michael McFaul, who served as U.S. ambassador to Russia during the Obama administration, said that he was in Moscow meeting with officials in the weeks leading up to Obama’s 2008 election win.”
    But Democrat so.... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Oh yes you can imagine it, you lived it during the Obama admin. Do you still insist that Obama is a secret Muslim from Kenya? Or that he is a Marxist? We've all been through this outrage for the last 8 years and now that the tables are turned you reject it.

    I never did...so I couldn't "still"....Obama's likely neither Muslim or Christian, other than being sympathetic to one and using the other for political reasons....He's a red-diaper socialist...his religion is government.

    What if Republicans had been like the liberal progressive Democrats? Demonstrations, rioting, destroying businesses and other people's property, preventing people from getting where they need to go. Is this right?

    Like giving more people unemployment checks is good for the economy.

    For every dollar spent it turns around and creates 1.6 dollars of economic activity. So if you give a poor person a dollar, it goes through 6 other people's pockets for goods and services. Give a rich person a dollar and it goes nowhere.

    Weak grasp of economics, eh?

    Dollars invested in business create jobs.

    Smoky forgets one thing, if people have no money they cant buy the things business creates. In fact if they have less money they buy less. In which case business must lay off people, meaning more people have less. I do understand that business is not charity, duh. Nothing gets done unless there is a market for it. But if the market only consists of the .01% of the population just how much business will succeed? Ergo income transfers from the rich to the middle class via high taxes. Ford will, of necessity, sell 100 Focus model cars for every Lincoln they sell. BUT if no one can afford the bottom level cars Ford will simply go out of business.

    It is the wealth of the middle class that pushes production and therefore creates jobs. Do you really expect the .01% to invest in businesses that cant sell anything? They're not that stupid. Those .01% ers have always managed to make their riches regardless of how high the taxes are.
