Problem lies in his business models. No company need make any money. His long history is to screw customers and contractors. Cohen's job, as his lawyer, was to tell contractors that they would not be paid. Eventually they might get 40 cents on the dollar after a lawsuit.

What does that say about all American allies? Can the Kurds sue?

America just surrendered again today.

Surrender 2: The scumbag Don said Turkey would only occupy a tiny 18 mile sliver of Syria along the Turkey border. Well Turkey made a deal with what apparently is their future new ally - Russia. Russian and Turks will ethic cleanse the entire border some 30 miles into Syria. Russian and Turk (allied forces) will patrol that region forever.

Turks can trust the Russian leader. They do not trust the anti-American president. But then only people such as the KKK, White Supremacists and Nazis do.

Surrender 3: The anti-America president said American soldiers will fight Daesh from inside Iraq. Because his ego tells him what to think, then he forgot to ask Iraq's permission. Today, Iraq said those American troops will be expelled.

Why? Everyone in the world knows that Trump has contempt for all America allies that do not praise his ego. Iraq knows who is surrendering and who is the new power: Russia. Iraq must now cozy up to Russia who is more than willing to replace a massive power vacuum created by people who voted for Trump.

How many more surrenders are ongoing? Over in the western Pacific were once many countries allied and cooperating in a unified defense. Those agreements are now being terminated since nations fear that being allies with America is now dangerous. Trump will sacrifice anyone to enhance his ego.

For example, S Korea and Japan once shared intelligence for mutual defense. That stops this month. The anti-American president said it is now acceptable for N Korea to have missiles that can nuke S Korean and Japanese cities. Without TPP, there is no reason to those nations to cooperate or to formalize a western Pacific Nato. They know who is moving in to fill a massive power vacuum.

Wacko extremists say this is good. Because it 'wrecks shit'.

Moderates would never surrender everywhere. Extremists do.

The wackos here will insult this poster rather than deal with reality. These anti-American Trump voters cannot admit that Trump has "made America surrender again" - MASA.

America just surrendered again today.

Mother told me, yes, she told me I'd meet girls like you.
She also told me, "stay away, you'll never know what you'll catch."
Just the other day I heard a soldier falling off some Indonesian junk that's going round.

Mommy's alright, daddy's alright, they just seem a little weird.
Surrender, surrender, but don't give yourself away, ay, ay, ay.

Father says, "your mother's right, she's really up on things."
"before we married, mommy served in the wacs in the Philippines."
Now, I had heard the wacs recruited old maids for the war.
But mommy isn't one of those, I've known her all these years.

Mommy's alright, daddy's alright, they just seem a little weird.
Surrender, surrender, but don't give yourself away, ay, ay, ay.

Whatever happened to all this season's losers of the year?
Every time I got to thinking, where'd they disappear?
When I woke up, mom and dad are rolling on the couch.
Rolling numbers, rock and rolling, got my kiss records out.

Mommy's alright, daddy's alright, they just seem a little weird.
Surrender, surrender, but don't give yourself away, ay, ay, ay.

Away.
Away.

This guy must have The Cellar on speed dial. He replies in minutes so that we can all be ordered how to think. Then posts insults like a child rather than facts like an adult.

I thought that was The Donald's job to lie. Since he knows more than the generals, scientists, lawyers, weathermen, teachers, police, congressmen, real estate professionals, American allies, and Einstein. Well he did not list the last one yet. But he will.

Apparently an extremist here is trying to steal The Don's job.

"ordered how to think"

I can't direct that which ain't happenin', tommy...

Ever since I was a young boy
I've played the silver ball
From Soho down to Brighton
I must have played them all
But I ain't seen nothing like him
In any amusement hall
That deaf dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pin ball!

He stands like a statue,
Becomes part of the machine
Feeling all the bumpers
Always playing clean
He plays by intuition,
The digit counters fall
That deaf dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pin ball!

He's a pin ball wizard
There has got to be a twist
A pin ball wizard,
S'got such a supple wrist

How do you think he does it? I don't know!
What makes him so good?

He ain't got no distractions
Can't hear those buzzers and bells
Don't see lights a flashin'
Plays by sense of smell
Always gets a replay
Never seen him fall
That deaf dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pin ball!

I thought I was
The Bally table king
But I just handed
My pin ball crown to him

Even on my favorite table
He can beat my best
His disciples lead him in
And he just does the rest
He's got crazy flipper fingers
Never seen him fall
That deaf dumb and blind kind
Sure plays a mean pin ball!

The Don has again told his disciples how great he is. He will build his wall in Colorado. He said it will be the best wall ever built because he is a greatest builder. It will be a mile high.

He did not lie - believe it or not. For the benefit of Trump worshippers, that wall will be a mile high above sea level.

Then we will forget about the ethnic cleansing of Kurds in Syria. The Don says all that will be good. He also says no Kurds are dying. Probably because they can continue living in heaven.

the wall

We don't need no education
We don't need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone
Hey, teachers, leave them kids alone
All in all it's just another brick in the wall
All in all you're just another brick in the wall
We don't need no education
We don't need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave those kids alone
Hey teachers, leave those kids alone
All in all you're just another brick in the wall
All in all you're just another brick in the wall
"Wrong, do it again! Wrong, do it again!"
"If you don't eat yer meat, you can't have any pudding
How can you have any pudding if you don't eat yer meat?"
"You, yes, you behind the bike sheds, stand still, laddy"

Now the scumbag president wants to go back into Syria to protect oil wells. The Russians responded by bluntly ordering the defeated American army out. So now the emotional White House wants to deploy armor to protect those oil wells.

He assumed Iraq will go along with it. He assumes that he has any credibility in the world. He only knows how to get Americans killed for no purpose.

Back to the musical interlude provided by a Russian sympathizer.

From Russia with love, I fly to you
Much wiser since my goodbye to you
I've travelled the world to learn
I must return
From Russia with love
I've seen places, faces
And smile for a moment
But, oh, you haunted me so
Still, my tongue tied young bride
Would not let my love for you show
In case you'd say "No"
To Russia I flew but there and then
I suddenly knew you'd care again
My running around is through
I'd fly to you
From Russia with love

And that's just at the foot. If he sites it right, at the foothills of the Front Range. Farther east, well, not so much. Pseudoastonishment, noted.

Do you know, I suspect that The Donald Who Didn't Get My Vote But Might Later (is not infuriating tw a good general way to advance the free Republic's interests?) tweets things just to bait the not-so-canny on the Left and the anti-Trumpkins in general into outgribing, frothing, and rapid circumambulation (really rapid) or circumsaltation, while what he actually does is a good deal better thought out and more admirable than his persecuters give him credit for.

I'm a sterling fellow; I do not harbor prejudice. The anti-Trumpkins are actuated by their prejudice alone. It is a prejudice that is theirs alone.

Schadenfreude may not be edifying, and it may be a vice, but there's a certain amount of it in watching these worthless people chew off their own tongues before returning to their regular course of impeachment-scented mental masturbation.

Some of us make a hobby of supporting reality by insulting your unreality and yourself. Now bend over like a real guy, and the more carnal among us will inject greater and American reality up your touchhole. The Middle-Eastern phrase is "We'll bring Masoud."
