    Do think CNN brings a balanced coverage of this administration. They put a negative spin on everything , even when Carrier agreed to stay in the US CNN put a negative spin on it. They give him no credit for a buoyant stock market but the very second it starts to dip they will pile in on him for it.

    When Boeing and LM suddenly found they could shave 100's of millions off their Government contract prices, CNN went on the attack again saying the president should not have got involved in haggling with contractors etc etc.

    Trump is 100% correct on CNN , it is personal on both sides , they hate each other. CNN went all in for Clinton both on air and in donations from their parent company and they are hurting badly ever since.
    Take your head out of your arse and admit that the spectacle of the press conference yesterday was a disgrace for the so called leader of the free world.

    One confounding issue in all of this is that media predictions about Trump are by and large being proved to be true. Since when did telling the truth become bias? If that's the standard we've gone beyond Orwellian. What we're seeing is the rage of Caliban at seeing his face in the mirror.

    Trump is in meltdown and publicly so. His temperament was questioned repeatedly during the campaign. He's fulfilling those fears and doing so in spades.

    He rages about what are actually verifiable, demonstrable proofs eg the numbers at his inauguration. Its as if he simply cant bear any reality.

    My assessment of these melt downs is that he is in permanent defence mode, trying to keep his ego intact. This means not only can he not function, he can be very easily "played". A narcissist all of whose energies go to maintaining the false structures which sustain his self-image is a narcissist on the verge of burn out.

    There will come a time when all a reporter has to say is "See that helicopter on the WH lawn? Bet you couldnt fly it. Bet Hillary could."

    U.S. News
    Trump weighs mobilizing Nat Guard for immigration roundups


    ......A draft memo obtained by The Associated Press outlines a Trump administration proposal under consideration to mobilize as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up unauthorized immigrants. Millions of those who would be affected in 11 states live nowhere near the Mexico border.........
    Under the plan, state governors would have final say on whether it happens in their respective states.

    Update: Trump admin denying report

    Interesting read:

    These 3 Companies Will Benefit from Trump’s Repatriation Tax Reform: Apple Inc. (AAPL), General Electric Company (GE), Microsoft Corporation (MSFT)

    One of President Donald Trump’s most notable campaign promises was the potential for repatriation tax reform.

    A repatriation tax occurs when money earned overseas is transferred back to domestic accounts. This taxable event must occur before any money can be spent or invested domestically in the United States.

    Right now, capital that is repatriated from overseas subsidiaries is subject to the U.S. corporate tax rate of 35%. This has provided a barrier for companies that wish to bring foreign money home, and Trump has proposed a tax ‘holiday’ where this tax is reduced for a temporary period of time.

    This article will discuss repatriation tax reform in detail and identify three companies poised to benefit from lower repatriation tax rates: Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), General Electric Company (NYSE:GE), and Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT).

    (The really tragic thing here is that when it was still in your own mind you probably imagined that this bizarre rant was somehow a reply to my post. Perhaps seeing it in black and white will make you realize that it's really not.)

    Anyone else nostalgic for the days when the US had a real President?



    A man who did a good job, rather than talked a good job.

    Proverbs 6:12-15 "A worthless person, a wicked man, Is the one who walks with a perverse mouth, Who winks with his eyes, who signals with his feet, Who points with his fingers; Who with perversity in his heart continually devises evil, Who spreads strife. Therefore his calamity will come suddenly; Instantly he will be broken and there will be no healing."
    I wouldn't go so far as to call Trump a worthless person and the line that you quote from St Paul is talking about engaging in pagan cultic meals as opposed to who you vote for. Just to be certain; do you believe that Christians should only vote for Christians?
