The US of A voted for Trump, those here who are US citizens seem happy he won, who do you suggest should 'grow a pair' and what do you propose they do?

Trump will continue to make an idiot of himself because thats what he does, people voted for him knowing this but you guys elected ken from Mattels Barbie doll range biggrin.gif

Incorrect.
You seem to have your facts all wrong.

The majority of the people voted for Clinton.
That does not count.
The majority of the Electoral College voted for chump.
That does count.

I suggest that everyone 'grow a pair' just to be able to stand up and voice objections to him sufficiently
to trigger an impeachment.

He is incompetent and a bumbling, stumbling, babbling fool.
He is in several conflicts of interests (along with his daughter).
He is a past-master, black-belt 5th Dan at nepotism.
He is hailed as "The-Grabber-In-Chief".
He flouts convention at every turn.
He appoints unqualified people to senior posts.
He has an outstanding list of lawsuits in progress.
He is being investigated by three different security tribunals.
He refuses to release Tax Records.
He ignores the US Constitution and does what he wants.
What's more, he is a brash bully and has his staff completely intimidated.

If you're happy with an idiot like that having access to nuclear launch codes that's completely up to you
but be aware that there are a growing number of citizens who are displeased and embarrassed by his antics.

For what it's worth, I didn't vote for Barbie's Ken, as you so inelegantly put it, nor did I vote for his arrogant SOB father either.
At least "Ken" can parse a sentence and can articulate thoughts.
He, unlike chump, does not have the attention span of a gnat.

BTW, we are holding classes for a growing numbers of your citizens who are fed up with chump who now want to be Canadian.

And.... thats why I said the US of A. The public here do not elect the Premier either, we elect politicians who then elect the First/Prime minister

The electoral college was set up so that the POTUS had to win across the US and not just fight in the big cities/regions. If you took California out of the equation then Trump wins the public vote quite comfotably

Disagreeing with the President is not reason to impeach, George W Bush won two terms and plenty of people voiced objections towards him.

I'm not happy with anyone having that kind of power. Well in 5 years time they can get together and vote him out of office

And here me thinking I was being as polite as I could be about him.
'Ken' comes across to me as a walking cliche politician, a pathetic spineless please everyone 'shed a tear' at the right moment sad excuse of man, it looks like an act and plenty of Canadians buy it up in spades. I mean c'mon theres no way that came out of the land of lumberjacks and mounties... ohh wait Justin Biebers canadian isn't he.. I take it all back

Yet you appear to have the same lack of the average yank's limited knowledge of the American Electoral System in that you persist

For the record, when you mention "US of A voted for chump", the rest of the sane world could take that as, pardon the cliché, "We the people"

Fact.

Come to Canada. We are legalising MJ so you could "chill" here legally.

Did Canada not vote for the Liberals, did the UK not vote for Conservatives? Neither of those two held popular majorities yet the 'country' voted them into power

Seen that, bought the shirt and figured it wiznae fur me, not to say I disagree with it being legal. Maybe the SG should argue for those powers, legalise it, police the source and tax it with the proceeds going into rehabilitation..

Hot off the press....

chump fires Director of FBI...
Click here

It seems that chump has again shot himself in the foot.
Firing James Comey was the stupidest thing he could have done.
Rest assured that Comey will spill all now that he's nolonger under chump's fatuous shadow.
Impeachment may be another step closer.

Firing seems to be all that chump wants to do these days.
Let's see...

Former Director of The FBI, James Comey (as of today),
before that, Acting Attorney General Sally Yates for having the temerity to stand against chump's travel ban.
before that, the Surgeon General Vivek Murthy got it in the neck because he was part of Obama's Administration.
before that it was Preet Bahara's turn to joine the Dole Queue
before that, Steve Bannon (severe demotion)
before that, General Flynn
before that.....

chump has been described as a nine yearold with a six yearold's vocabulary.
Would that it were so as some nine yearolds can at least be reasoned with.

Now that he's stopped crowing about the "Win" over the Healthcare Act, it remains to be seen how Congress will handle it. Fingers crossed for them knocking it back.
Huge disgust over "pre-existing" medical conditions not being insured for (in the US) and the fact that chump is removing women's rights and regressing america towards a Handmaiden's (Tale) State.

Would you believe that pre-existing conditions deemed as non-insurable now include Post-Partum Depression, Caesarean Section and Rape!
chump is driving america back into the Dark Ages.

Back to Comey...
You can just bet on how, after being flung under the bus (sic: no job) by chump, that bird will truly start to sing...that is, if his car does not have a brakes issue shortly.

It is a known fact that chump hates anything to do with Obama(his person) and anything he set up and nothing short of undoing or obliterating anything that Obama did previously, will suffice. Such is his vitriol and massive insecurity.

Further to the Comey firing...

It is being remarked on in the US today of just how untimely and illogical Comey's termination is being perceived.

The thought that Comey was getting too near to the truth on chump's collusion with Moscow so was cut off at the knees
before major revelations are delivered is one thing and there's the other that Comey's scuttling of Clinton's chances at the
last election were the excuse for his dismissal in that he himself interfered with possible election results that would have favoured Clinton is
the other. (In which case why wasn't he fired months earlier after he announced the opening of the investigation into Clinton's eMail mis-dealings?)
Comey's letter of termination stated that chump considered Comey to be unable to lead the FBI.
Probably that means to dance to chump's fiddle.

In any event, chump just last week praised Comey's efforts in leading the FBI and delivering news that chump's participation as a russian puppet
were groundless. This, in and of itself is a complete fabrication by chump, again trying to spin more lies into the mix and bamboozle the easily swayed American
hoi-polio.

Wherever there is a national controversy, the American solution IS to spin it to the Nth degree where no-one can possibly get to the facts.
Watergate, Ollie North, Cambodia, the Kennedy Assassination(s) are all cases in point.

BTW, chump was described yesterday on US TV, as a "blatant and pathological LIAR".

To add insult to injury, Comey's pool of possible successors includes noneother than the despicable
Rudi Guilliani, the former Mayor of NY and one of chump's "best pals". Now, if that ain't setting the fox in charge of the henhouse, I don't know what is.

Let's hope that Comey has enough resolve to stand up and issue some payback for being thrown under the bus.
Fingers crossed.

Now chump's 'administration' (sic: gang of incompetent thugs) are trying to pin the blame for authoring the Comey Firing Letter on
possibly the last honest man in the US Justice Department, namely Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Rosenstein happens to be tipped as a possible objective Special Prosecutor should that appointment go the distance and the weakling US Senate and Congress manage
to resume investigation into chump's dealing with vlad and his gang.

NOTE: That NO US Media were present in the WH yesterday while chump met with two Russian diplomats.

This is tantamount to treason!
Since Russia has been the idealogical opponent (therefore the enemy) of the US since October 1917,
giving aid and comfort to the enemy is a treasonable offence.

The pure pity of this entire debacle is that the poor weak-kneed Republicans in Congress are shackled to chump therefore not willing to vote for impeachment
no less than even to rock the boat. Their number is 58 at latest count, however there is growing resentment and embarrassment
of 45's actions. The GOP is as yet unwilling to dump chump and give up the reins of power. Sad, so sad, really sad.

It has been mentioned that the US is undergoing a Coup d'Etat and Democracy is a crumbling shambles.

Poor beleaguered Sean Spicer (WH Press Spokesman) is in meltdown mode. Found hiding in the WH bushes yesterday by the press then locked in his WH office by his
own staff, it is reported he can't take chump's behaviour. Poor sod.

Is there no-one in the entire USA who's willing enough to stand up to the Orange Blob?

For those who cannot remember, this situation first hit the headlines when Nixon (I'm not a crook) first fired Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox
and caused a mini implosion in the US Judiciary over Watergate.

The situation seems to be repeating itself.

Now, if they can only get hold of an unbiased Special Prosecutor appointed to continue Comey's work,
the poor huddled masses struggling to be free may yet have a chance at redemption.

While you were sleeping....

Changing his story one more time....

chump now states in an open interview on US tv that he fired Comey because he was a grandstander and a showboater. Fat dumb pot calling the kettle black if you ask me.
Also....that Comey was not well-liked by other FBI Agents and peers.

So, now two reasons (alternate facts?) why chump now chooses to spout more lies and contradict himself yet again in order to further bamboozle the masses and further cloud the issue. Add to that that chump himself had already, he said at the same interview today, made up his mind to fire Comey since the day after the inauguration for what he (Comey) did to Clinton. chump praised Comey to the heavens for having the courage to bring out Clinton’s mis-deeds.
Remember chump screaming “lock her up!” at the time?

chump stated that he asked Comey if he (chump), was being investigated. Once face-to-face and twice more by telephone. Those questions were inappropriate to begin with and chump had the temerity to claim that Comey’s answer was negative on all three counts. LIES. Comey never would have given those assurance nor even replied to that question.

The whole chump administration is corrupt.
When now interim Deputy FBI Director McCabe was asked about Comey’s standing within the FBI and stated that he himself had nothing but the highest regard for Comey and that those statements made by chump to the contrary were “A complete FALLACY”.

BTW, Sean Spicer tried to conduct an interview (after being found hiding in the bushes) insisting that the lights be turned out. Duh!
Spicer’s stand-in spokesperson (Susan Huckabee Sanders) stating that she had interviewed hundreds of FBI Agents since Comey’s firing yesterday (on Comey’s leadership and standing within the FBI) is clearly lies.
They are all at it.

Told you they’d all lie through their teeth and spin this thing until nobody actually gets to the truth.
Comey, by the way, was due to start testifying about the russia connection the day after he was fired.
To credit McCabe who stated that FBI Agents would continue the russian connection investigation so there is hope there.

p.s. The WH is pissed that the russians published photos of yesterday’s WH Meeting with “diplomats” Lavrov and Kissliak.
Putin just threw chump under the bus.

This last weekend, formed security chief under Obama, James Clapper stated that there were current internal (in the US) threats to national security
and that the current, president dumold chump, was one of them.

Since the WH meeting with russian "diplomats" Lavrov and Kissliak last week, it is now revealed that chump
breached national security AGAIN by giving the russians secret codewords used in the fight against the Islamic State.

THIS IS TREASON.
Having sworn enemies in the WH is also a breach of national security.

Chump bragged telling Lavrov and Kissliak that "He gets very good intel".
Too bad he can't keep it to himself.

It's a wonder he hasn't given them a copy of the nuclear launch codes either.
That fat orange porcine fool just does not get it.

Not only is he a stupid, incompetent, inarticulate moron with the intelligence level of a flea,
he also thinks he's above the law.

The word "Impeachment" is now being bandied about freely and publicly in Washington.

I already mentioned, that it's only a matter of a, now very, short time 'til it happens.

Chump's plan?
Divert attention from chump's chronic stupidity and cite the human rights abuses and mass murders in Syria.

It's not going to work Jaffa-face.

Now the US is going to have to try to chase down reputed-to-exist conversations tapes over the Comey/russian Investigations.

More stupid American spin nobody should be buying.

Watgergate ver 2.0 now beta testing.

The rising furore over chump's reported memo to Comey asking Comey to abandon his investigation of the now disgraced General Michael Flynn in itself
a flagrant and obvious breach and deliberate attempt by chump to subvert justice and the rule of law.

As forecast, the frequent use of the word "IMPEACHMENT" is now apparent in the US culminating today
by the REPUBLICAN (sic: his own party) Senator Al Green standing in the Senate today and publicly asking for chump's impeachment.

Looking at the history of leaks from the WH, it is not impossible to believe that the source of those leaks
is noneother than chump himself.
He just can't seem to keep his fat face shut.

The Israeli Government is really not impressed by chump divulging their secrets to anyone (particularly to the kremlin gang) on the Islamic State and by doing so, chump has compromised America's relationships with Israel, Australia, Canada, Germany, New Zealand and the U.K.
over the exchange of counter-terrorism and other 'intelligence', national security matters.
Pity the poor sod who infiltrated ISIS to provide that information. chump will have his blood on his fat fingers forever.

It will be interesting to note if chump's planned meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu happens next week.

Anyway, the request for impeachment proceedings is now on the Senate's table.

Tick tick tick dumold.
Your time's a-running out.

To add insult to injury, Vladimir is now offering to send the US,
a written transcript of Lavrov and Kislyak's meeting with chump in the WH last week.
Is chump being thrown further under the bus by kremlin thugs or are they merely
attempting to protect a possible WH mole?

Comey is expected to testify perhaps tomorrow.

Has America finally found "a pair"?

Errors on my previous post.....

Senator Al Green is a DEMOCRAT. Sorry.

The reported memo asking that chump requested Comey to "let it go" over Comey's investigation of Flynn's dealing with the kremlin are
from Comey's own notes.

Comey is expected to testify at the Senate's Judicial Committee while chump is visiting Israel next week (if they decide to have him).

Today chump gave a rousing speech in the Commencement Ceremony for the new US Coast Guard Entry.
It was all about him and how bad he's been treated.....wah wah wah!

What encouragement for new officers. wacko.gif
