Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

The dream team from hell

Post by taabarang » Wed Nov 16, 2016 7:02 pm

From BBC
20 January 2017.


Grey line
What the US media says about the transition:

"In a normal transition to a normal administration, there's always disorder," writes senior Republican national security expert and Trump opponent Eliot Cohen in the Washington Post.

"This time may be different... The president-elect is surrounding himself with mediocrities whose chief qualification seems to be unquestioning loyalty. By all accounts, his ignorance, and that of his entourage, about the executive branch is fathomless."

"Every administration tends to have ideological divisions, to rely on an old guard of party people alongside its newcomers, innovators and ideological insurgents, Ross Douthat writes in the New York Times.

"But in this case, apart from the infamous-but-still-marginal alt-right and the small clutch of conservative intellectuals for Trump, there is really no Trumpist new guard at all, at least among the people qualified to staff a presidential administration."

Fox News, however, characterises the recent sackings as part of Mike Pence's campaign to remove lobbyists. "The move to get rid of lobbyists in key roles was one of the first decisions made by Vice President-elect Mike Pence in his role overseeing the construction of a Trump administration," it said.

"One source said the decision to remove the lobbyists 'makes good on [Trump's] vision of how he wants his government constructed'."

Politico quoted a Trump insider as describing the transition battle as a "knife fight".

"Trump continues to build his administration as he did his corporation and then his drama-heavy but ultimately successful campaign: with warring factions that will guarantee that the constant chaos and palace intrigue will continue in the White House," the website said.

"The idea of a 'team of rivals' isn't exactly a novel approach for a president filling out a cabinet. But this one may prove to be less of a team than a viper pit."

It is not from "From BBC
20 January 2017."

It says, "Mr Trump is due to be inaugurated as president on 20 January 2017".

" BBC=British Blundering Copulatory. (copulatory, as in getting Fu*ked.)"

It's absolutely frightening that a legitimate news agency like BBC is so stupidly and groundlessly attacked for one reason alone-you are scared to death of facts that contradict what you really really need to believe. Refute the message not the messenger.

Here's a Fact Jack! (TAAB). The head of Japan is now in America to see President Elect Trump. He is scared Sh*tless Japan may have to protect itself. Smart are the Japs, cut a deal ahead of all the other freeloading countries our son's/daughters have been protecting and the US tax payer has been paying for. Time for all freeloaders to start paying their share. Time to pay up Japan, South Korea and all you freeloading NATO countries. There is a new sheriff in town and he is coming around to get the protection money. Go get them Donald! Pay up or we walk.

Not sure about the whole freeloaders thing. The US was scared of the whole "domino effect" and stationed themselves in most of those countries themselves. Some of them would also be happy to rid themselves of US bases. Might be mutually beneficial for them to leave. However, the US has dug itself into a whole as if one of these countries does go to war (Europe or Asia), the US might very well be compelled to war either way no matter how isolationist Trump may want to sound.

If your from England, Japan, Korea, Europe, etc., do us American tax payers a favor by getting hold of your politicians and ask them to put up for a vote closing all America bases in your countries. Never happen as they all love Uncle Sugar spending US dollars to protect them. We have Aircraft Carriers, long range bombers, sub launched cruise missiles and ICBM missiles, why do we need to protect any of you? We need to spend the money saved rebuilding America and it infrastructure.
