I don't think Congress or General Mattis would allow that to happen. Nevertheless, the clueless Apricot Hellbeast needs to stop running his mouth. I wish someone would sedate him before he goes out in public, and lock him in the panic room (sans phone) when he is left unsupervised. :lol:

Within half a decade, NK will have the means to launch nukes at the US West Coast. Before that, they'll be able to at least launch a nuke at Japan. It's past time to start taking that country and their insane leader seriously.

The most puzzling thing about Donald Trump is why a man who spends so much time in Florida would need to use fake tan.

China is sending over 15,000 troops and a *lot* of hardware to the borders of North Korea while the US is moving assets including an aircraft carrier to the region. I doubt this means war but it's a sign China is tired of Kim Jong Un's games lobbing missiles into the Sea Of Japan and probably preparing to detonate another underground nuke on April 15th and is willing to jointly make a show of force with the US to give North Korea the message play time is over.

Two Russian Bombers Fly Near Alaska, and U.S. Scrambles Jets
By ERIC SCHMITTAPRIL 18, 2017

WASHINGTON — Two Russian long-range bombers flew about 100 miles off the Alaskan coast on Monday night, the first time since President Trump took office that Moscow has sent warplanes so close to the United States, the military said Tuesday.

The two Russian Tu-95 Bear bombers flew off Kodiak Island, within a 200-mile area called the Air Defense Identification Zone. The bombers’ flight into that space prompted the Air Force to scramble two F-22 stealth fighter jets and an E-3 airborne early-warning plane to intercept the Russian planes, according to First Lt. Lauren Hill, a spokeswoman for the North American Aerospace Defense Command, or Norad, in Colorado.

After the American jets flew alongside the Russian bombers for several minutes, the Russian planes broke off and headed back to their base in eastern Russia, Lieutenant Hill said. The interception was first reported by Fox News.

Since 2007, the United States has intercepted Russian warplanes that flew into the air defense zone about 60 times, all without incident, Lieutenant Hill said. The last time Russian bombers flew near the United States was July 4, 2015, when a pair of Russian bombers flew off the coasts of Alaska and California, coming as close as 40 miles to Mendocino, Calif.

The interception is another sign of the recent steep decline in relations between Moscow and Washington, after President Trump signaled he sought to improve relations between the two rivals. Last week in Moscow, Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson said relations with Russia were at a “low point.”

Russian Planes Detected Off Alaska 4 Times This Week
By MATTHEW PENNINGTON, Associated Press
April 21, 2017 3:11 PM


WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. military says Russian military aircraft have approached the coast of Alaska four times this week, and U.S. fighter jets intercepted them twice.

The military says the latest incident happened late Thursday, and that F-22 Raptor aircraft and Canadian CF-18 Hornet fighters safely intercepted two Russian TU-95 Bear bombers.

Lori O’Donley is spokeswoman for the North American Aerospace Defense Command. She says the incidents all happened in international airspace.

Russia periodically flies into the U.S. air defense identification zone that extends 200 miles off the coast. O’Donley says the last such string of incidents was in 2014.

The incidents come amid heightened U.S.-Russian tensions over the civil war in Syria.

North American Aerospace Defense Command is a U.S.-Canada organization that monitors approaches to North America and defends the airspace.

I think the odds of Trump getting impeached before the end of the year has dramatically increased.

The thing I've found most interesting and infuriating about Trump is that as a candidate and now as prez he somehow manages to say and do things that are *technically* true or permissible, even while being fucking insane/ridiculous. So when he gets called on it, he just says "It's fine." and it turns out that there isn't actually a law against what he said or did, so he gets away with it, because for some reason no one is willing or able to stop him. :confused:

Do you think?

I mean, that no one is willing to stop him?

I live in Europe, so we probably get a different news coverage. But the consensus seems to be that Trump is in a lot of trouble (even the republicans seem to think so)

Yes, some Republicans are reportedly not happy with what he's doing. But everything he's doing is technically legal, and often so insane that no one seems to know what to say or do about it.

Lefties are pretty much focused on trying to flip the House to a Democratic majority in 2018, which would make Trump's life a lot more difficult, but I'm sceptical that that will happen.
