Your gal Hillary bought and paid for Russian disinformation! Lmao!


Deflection noted! Do you realize that your billion-dollar loser president has been in office for the past 3 years?

Hey look, still obstructing justice, I see. Comrade Trump is the world's dumbest criminal. He doesn't know how to keep his mouth shut.


Trump Reportedly Wanted Don McGahn to Deny He Obstructed Justice –– And McGahn Declined, Twice

Two concurrent news stories are reporting that in the days before and after the Mueller report was released, administration officials asked White House attorney Don McGahn to publicly deny that President Donald Trump obstructed justice — but McGahn refused.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Trump was seeking a public declaration from McGahn that the president’s request for him to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller in 2017 — a request Trump continues to deny having made — did not rise to the level of obstruction. So, the Journal reports, less than 24 hours after the Mueller report was released, Trump directed his personal attorney, Emmett Flood, to seek out McGahn and inquire whether the latter would come out and deny the conversation about firing Mueller ever happened.

McGahn rebuffed the request. Reached for comment about the request, McGahn’s lawyer, William Burck, said: “We did not perceive it as any kind of threat or something sinister. It was a request, professionally and cordially made.”

The New York Times story goes further, and reports that Trump made an additional request of McGahn for the same public declaration of innocence in the small window of time between when Trump’s lawyers received a copy of the Mueller report and when a redacted version of it was released to the public.

According to the Times, McGahn did not immediately turn down the first White House request. But upon the report’s release, Mr. McGahn decided against putting out a statement in defense of Trump. Notably, the Mueller report included comments that Trump made disparaging McGahn as disloyal and someone who likely leaked information to the press to make himself look good. The Times also reports that a second request of McGahn — made after the report’s release — was similarly denied.

“Mr. McGahn’s cooperation with Mr. Mueller played a key role in allowing the special counsel’s investigators to paint a picture in their report of a president determined to use his power atop the executive branch to protect himself from the Russia investigation,” the Times wrote. “The episode shows the lengths the White House has gone to around the release of the Mueller report to push back on the notion that Mr. Trump obstructed justice.”

Your all-time favorite president is going to eat my lunch?

Methinks Kim Jong Un ate his lunch when your Messiah took the word of his dictator “friend”, when Kim Jon Un told him he had nothing to do with the treatment and murder of Otto Warmbier.

Putin also ate his lunch when Comrade Trump sided with Putin in Helsinki over US intelligence that Russia interfered with our election. From the horse’s mouth: "I don’t see any reason why" Russia would be responsible…..but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today”.

You must feel very proud to have a president who sides with murderous dictators like Kim Jon Un and Vladimir Putin.

Newsflash......Rudy has now decided not to go to Ukraine.
Seems he didn't think things through before saying he was.
Apparently, "they" are friends with someone that hates Trump or criminals or did he say that out loud??

Trump raises tariffs on his own goods(ties/shirts) he has made in China. Telling Americans to build their own factories...
Can't make this stuff up.

Their only common trait is seeing the truth about trump

Methinks Comrade Trump, America's billion dollar loser kool-aid drinkers will end up paying more for their MAGA hats.


Larry Kudlow Admits U.S. Will Pay Tariffs On Chinese Goods, Contradicting Trump

"Last week, the president falsely claimed that China was paying tariffs directly to the U.S. Treasury Department."

White House chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow undercut President Donald Trump’s claim that China will pay for tariffs imposed by the administration on goods entering the U.S., admitting that Americans will end up footing the bill.

In an interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace, Kudlow, who serves as the head of the National Economic Council, was pressed on the validity of the president’s assertion.

“It’s not China that pays tariffs,” Wallace said. “It’s the American importers, the American companies that pay what in effect is a tax increase and oftentimes passes it on to U.S. consumers.”

“Fair enough,” Kudlow conceded. “In fact, both sides will pay.”

Doubling down on his fact check, Wallace again stressed that a tariff on goods entering the country wouldn’t be paid by the Chinese.

“No, but the Chinese will suffer GDP losses and so forth with respect to a diminishing export market,” Kudlow acknowledged. He added that “to some extent,” American businesses and consumers would end up paying.

Kudlow’s remarks essentially threw cold water on Trump’s Twitter message last week in which he contended that “Tariffs are NOW being paid to the United States by China of 25% on 250 Billion Dollars worth of goods & products.”

Though journalists have repeatedly corrected the president’s erroneous claims, explaining that tariffs don’t work that way, he has continued to perpetuate the myth in statement after statement.

In reality, as Wallace noted, importers bear the brunt of tariffs, meaning American businesses relying on Chinese products will end up paying for fees the Trump administration imposes on those items. The added expenses typically hit everyday consumers.

@ 8895 Millions

Well...Lordy...Lord!


A lot going on in that post, LeFou.


Yes...there is "a lot" going on!!!..........if that is what you wish to refer to the various questions that I asked....that even a 10 year old could have answered!..............Instead, you gave me a link to "find" these answers (that you don't even know)............But, for the heck of it, I'll play along with your SILLY game...........So let us indeed see what Tommy boy says:

***************************************************


Christian philosophy for Thomas depends on this: that the world of creatures is totally based--for its existence, endurance and operation--upon God, who freely creates, conserves and cooperates with what He has created.


Sounds fine ^ at face value....but then you would have to clearly explain how (the Christian God) "conserved and cooperated with"....all those early Christians who got tortured and then thrown to the lions....just for proclaiming their Christian faith!..........perhaps you can ask Franklin Graham or Jerry Falwell to field the question if it is over your head!


Aquinas recognizes four main kinds of law: the eternal, the natural, the human, and the divine. The last three all depend on the first, but in different ways. Were we to arrange them in a hierarchy, eternal would be at the top, then natural, then human. Divine law is not in conflict with natural law, but it reaches human beings by a different route, revelation.


so if we are to state that inalienable rights were NOT divinely revealed (like the 10 commandments); then it only leaves 2 options as a source for Humans.........that it is natural law, or human law...eternal law was not accessible to humans as noted below.


eternal law is identical to the mind of God as seen by God himself. It can be called law because God stands to the universe which he creates as a ruler does to a community which he rules. When God's reason is considered as it is understood by God Himself, i.e. in its unchanging, eternal nature (q91, a1) , it is eternal law.


since God the father and Jesus "were one".....it stands to reason that Jesus knew eternal law...under which it includes, the divine, the natural...and the human...........................so then again, if Jesus knew that he had inalienable rights....why did he not expound upon them when he was charged (regardless of whether or not he would suffer execution), as they were conferred upon him by the Father?


Divine law is derived from eternal law as it appears historically to humans, especially through revelation, i.e., when it appears to human beings as divine commands. Divine law is divided into the Old Law and the New Law (q91, a5). The Old and New Law roughly corresponding to the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. When he speaks of the Old Law, Thomas is thinking mainly of the Ten Commandments. When he speaks of the New Law, the teachings of Jesus.


So it seems apparent that inalienable rights were not revealed by Divine law...neither by Moses or by Jesus...as it was obvious that people of that epoch were not conferred with such rights.....(ie: men had more rights than women and children)...and that the rights of others could be taken away by those in power!


.Human law can be changed, and occasionally should be changed, but it should not be lightly changed. The reason is that respect for the law is largely a matter of custom or habit, and inessential change undermines this custom. The common good is not served by a more finely tuned, theoretically better law, if people have less respect for law and follow it less faithfully.


So by this^...we can safely say that inalienable rights are not borne of Human law.....because they are immutable and more perfect


The Relation of Human and Natural Law. the natural law is law with moral content, more general than human law. Natural law deals with necessary rather than with variable things. In working out human laws, human practical reason moves from the general principles implanted in natural law to the contingent commands of human law.
Natural law is more perfect than human laws, because of the variable subject-matter of human laws.


So if we can safely say that inalienable rights stem from natural law (and not from faulty Human edicts).....then how is it that Jesus (who was part human and part Divine) had no inkling of them.....and did not put them forth, as part of his creed.


Natural law holds that in general human life should be preserved and steps should be taken to preserve it.


Yet, Jesus...did not invoke his inalienable rights...in any attempt to preserve his (human) life in the face of adversity...instead, he waived them...and opted for his enemies to direct the course of his life....citing prophecy!

Yet you right wingers would want us all.....to invoke the same rights Jesus declined....as a reason to outlaw abortion!!!


Human law in one place differs from human law in another, but if they are laws and not perversions of law they all have the same ends, those contained in the natural law, which is an expression of eternal law.


So if natural law is an expression of Eternal (God's law)....and if natural law holds that all life should be preserved...then why didn't Jesus adhere to the eternal law of God the father?.........alternatively, if it was God (the father) who perverted his own eternal law......then it would have made Jesus's (alleged) sacrifice...null and void!


"Whatever is a means of preserving human life and of warding off its obstacles belongs to natural law"; in other words, a good justification for a moral or legal rule is that it promotes the preservation of human life. Behind this is the fact that all living beings possess an inclination for survival [corresponding to the nutritive faculty of the soul, as Aristotelians apprehend it].


so if you are intellectually honest........then you are left with the monumental question that asks......why didn't Jesus invoke his inalienable rights in an effort to "preserve" his human life (regardless of the outcome of his trial)...instead of choosing to just "hand himself over"...and giving his adversaries a free ride...and please don't that it is because he wanted to pay for the sins of humanity....because invoking his inalienable rights would not have been a sinful act on his part!


Grasping Natural Law--Synderesis
The grasp of the principles of natural law is achieved by a special capacity called synderesis. This is a natural intellectual habit, in one sense of habit but not in the central sense.
It is natural because all human beings are born with it.
It is intellectual because it makes possible the grasp of principles.


so you have no excuse ^ as to why Jesus would not have been able to grasp the principles of natural law
.......................................................................
it can be quite fun.....to trip-up the right wing Bible thumpers....with their own precepts!!!!........

not only are they frauds....IMO, they are abject deceivers.........they utilize the concept of inalienable rights as a cudgel in their attempt to hold the moral high ground in regards to the "preservation of life"....when the very people of the Faith they embrace...never used these inalienable rights, nor made any valiant effort to preserve the life of their innocents.

I know the intolerant illiberal liberal taliban on here are cushty with destroying momuments that they disapprove off.

Most normal folk will see it for what it is. A war memorial. But I'm interested on the memorial destroying taliban on here's reaction. They welcomed the removal of confederate monuments waffling on about slavery.

But they seem ok with slave owning george washington statues. And memorials to lincoln who was not particularly fond of black folks.

Of course the confederate memorial to stand watie the indian confederate officer caused them to pretend it doesn't exist. Because maybe watie was fighting unionist soldiers who invaded HIS lands.

Over to yous good folks and intolerant illiberal liberal taliban types..................



"A row in the US state of Maryland over the location of a 40ft-high cross will be resolved by the country's top court, and has sparked a vigorous debate about religious icons in public life.

You may not have heard much about the tussle over the Peace Cross, the 40-foot (12 meter) granite Latin Cross plonked incongruously in the middle of a busy intersection in Maryland.

That could be because you would probably need the help of a lawyer and a theologian to fully understand the potential ramifications of the dispute over this 96-year-old World War I monument that's gone all the way to the Supreme Court.

Three Maryland residents and the American Humanist Association - a non-profit organisation that advances secular humanism, a philosophy of life that seeks the greater good without theism or other supernatural beliefs - wish to see the memorial removed from public land.

Their reasoning is it contravenes the separation between church and state enshrined in the first amendment to the US Constitution, the so-called Establishment Clause."

And a wee gem for the normal posters to enjoy.................


"A friend of Jefferson Davis

In a quiet corner of Dean Cemetery is an obelisk, dedicated to Colonel Robert A Smith, and covered in tiny Confederate flags.

The site is looked after by a group of bikers. Smith, born in Edinburgh in 1836, left Scotland aged 14 to join his elder brother, James, in Jackson, Mississippi.

He earned a reputation as a brilliant and charismatic young officer, and later became a Colonel. In 1862, aged just 26, Smith led a charge at the Battle of Mumfordville in Kentucky and was fatally wounded."

Vlad...I have opposed taking down the monuments on here because I love looking at old statutes and the history of the Old South....funchesf had a fit when I opposed the same, and as a result started mocking holocaust victims (you will note he is no longer posting here....for a reason...)

but the fact is you, over in Scotsman land have no idea how much racial animosity has existed in the past here, how much still exists and how much some people believe those statutes are a monument to that racial animosity. You live in a quaint, white, non-diverse society. I.e....you just don't get it. People have the right to their opinions without being labeled as intolerant..on either side...just saying.

As do i. I love going into old churches and looking at the stone mason work. The stain glass windows. The hand carved woodwork. Top notch day out heading to say Rosslyn Chapel or St Giles Cathedral...............


"but the fact is you, over in Scotsman land have no idea how much racial animosity has existed in the past here, how much still exists and how much some people believe those statutes are a monument to that racial animosity."


True about me no living there. And my two trips to shermanland. New york and chicago were were warned by many folk not to go to black areas. Although we still went up to Lexington 125. But we were pissed.............


"You live in a quaint, white, non-diverse society. I.e....you just don't get it. People have the right to their opinions without being labeled as intolerant..on either side...just saying."


Depends what you class as diverse though. There are many nationalites live in Edinburgh. There are mosques, hindu temples, orthodox churches etc etc.

There are many cultural festivals held around old Edinburgh. But from what i read and see about America is racial strife seems to be getting worse.

So how will you break down the barriers? Or is it too far gone?

Yes you are correct about folk and opinions. But i tend to see more intolerance coming from 'progressives' and alleged liberals.

An example being the likes of bruce jenner. He is a geezer pretending to be a woman. Yet the hysteria unleashed by 'progressives' and alleged liberals is unhinged. Just saying gadgie. Just sayin.

Here is another wee ww1 memorial to americans.

Well I don't know how hysterical they have been about Bruce Jenner. I am old enough to remember when Bruce Jenner was an olympic Champion.....it is a little disconcerting to realize that he is Transgender and does not feel good in his male body (if it still is). . .but I really don't care about Jenner or any other of his famous klan...I pay zero attention to them....

I think generally though progressives (remember, progressives are not lefties...huge difference) believe in the rights of all people and if Bruce wants to be a woman, who are we to stand in his way....I would never date a transgender....the thought of being with a guy or even a guy without all of his parts makes me nauseous to think about... but since I don't have to date them, live with them or pay any attention to them, I don't care and not sure why anybody else would care either.

Racial barriers in the country will be gone when the white race is no longer in charge...another generation or two and white people in the US will be the minority by far...that is one reason Trump is so popular....he is fighting for white supremacy still.

I also cannot be arsed with the telly tribes. The reason i used jenner was because he was voted 'woman' of the year lol. There was a thread on here about him.

But it did give rise over here to the barkingness of allowing a child molesting geezer who says he is a woman to be jailed in a womans jail where he sexually assaulted real women.................


"I think generally though progressives (remember, progressives are not lefties...huge difference) believe in the rights of all people and if Bruce wants to be a woman, who are we to stand in his way...."


He is welcome to say he is a woman. Carry on. But at least they should admit he is a kid on woman. No a real one.

As for lefties i would say there are lots of good socialist ideals out there. I would class my self as a socialist. The SNP are centre left but not enough to the left as far as i am concerned

I find that 'progressives' crave the attention and the money that goes with it. That's why they are permanently 'outraged' about something or other................


"Racial barriers in the country will be gone when the white race is no longer in charge...another generation or two and white people in the US will be the minority by far...that is one reason Trump is so popular....he is fighting for white supremacy still."

See when whites become the minority will 'progressives' support them? Or are some minorities 'different' than others?

On another note keep your eyes on the coming eu elections. A political party which never existed 4 weeks ago are now favourites to wipe the floor with the mainstream parties in the uk.

Our lying press are on full meltdown trying to stop this. Not one media outlet has came out in favour of the brexit party. Most are openly hostile.

But no one listens to those the dafties anymore.
