  1. You are right and that could be the HUGE problem... In the old days things could be covered up, but today nothing is secure and things always come out. Of course if our security agencies come out tomorrow with anything that points to illegal activity, Trump's followers will never believe it and will call everyone a liar accept Trump... True? B/A
  2. I thought so too, but it appears Trump and his followers are now in support of shadow government ideals. When did it become okay to accept any politician at their word? It might be okay for some, but not for me. B/A
  3. Did you read the memo? It states this is not "verbatim". So that makes it incomplete and subject to be edited. A secret government. Who supports that idea? Well the Kommies do. B/A
  4. And I thought you guys were against secret governments, cover-ups and The Deep State... I guess not. B/A
  5. He released a memo... Truth will set you free... What's the big deal if he is clean? His followers will hold out until the end, but watch how his party starts to turn on him... Good or bad he is a threat to the system, and they will protect their interests in the end. JMHO B/A
  6. Well there you go pointing out facts again... China, India, Vietnam... It doesn't matter with all that corporate welfare via tax cuts. corporations are running to come back to America... B/A
  7. The question is... What's hide? Why not release it if there is nothing to it, like he said. Why give out a memo which is subject to opinion, rewrites and more fantasy... I really thought this time he would come clean.... B/A
  8. Trump Brings Up Hillarious Clinton's Emails While Defending Ukraine Call In a rambling press conference Wednesday in which he asserted he had done nothing wrong and tried to pivot the focus to Hillarious Clinton’s emails, President Donald Trump defended asking the Ukrainian president to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden. “You know there was no pressure,” Trump told reporters of his July 25 call with Volodymyr Zelensky, who joined him for the Wednesday press conference. A summary of the leaders’ call released earlier in the day revealed Trump asked Zelensky to investigate 2020 Democratic presidential contender Biden. Trump made the request while discussing U.S. military aid to Ukraine. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Tuesday called for a formal impeachment probe to determine whether Trump urged a foreign power to go after his political rival. When a reporter asked Trump Wednesday if he would like Zelensky to continue investigating Biden, Trump said he wanted him “to do whatever he can.” “I want him to do whatever he can, this was not his fault, he wasn’t there,” Trump said of Zelensky. “But whatever he can do in terms of corruption, because corruption’s rampant. Now when Joe Biden’s son walks away with millions of dollars from Ukraine and he knows nothing and they’re paying him millions of dollars, that’s corruption.” Trump was referring to a Ukrainian investigation into Hunter Biden’s business dealings while he was serving on the board of a Ukrainian gas company. The Ukrainian prosecutor in the case found no evidence of wrongdoing. Trump then pivoted to former 2016 presidential candidate Hilary Clinton’s emails, saying they should be investigated. He accused the U.S. government of being “corrupt,” defended using his personal lawyer as an envoy to Ukraine, and said Zelensky should give more money to the U.S. He then attacked Pelosi for opening an impeachment investigation. “She’s lost her way,” Trump said of Pelosi. “She’s been taken over by the radical left.” He ended by saying that Pelosi is no longer speaker of the House. She is. https://www.yahoo.com/news/donald-trump-defends-asking-ukraine-for-dirt-on-biden-by-blaming-everyone-else-191351816.html Ha ha ha… When all else fails go to Clinton... Deflect. Distract. Feed the sheep.... Come on Don throw the Hail Mary and go for Obama's birth certificate... Ha Ha Ha B/A
  9. It's okay, I'm sure they will let the whistleblower testify without any threats from The White House. B/A
  10. Well Shabs you called it... They released a memo, not a transcript. Trump once again misled the people by saying they would prove everyone wrong when in fact he's proven he can't tell the truth and is once again hiding... I hope his lawyers get paid before he files again. B/A
  11. White House accidentally sends anti-impeachment talking points to Democrats The White House accidentally sent its anti-impeachment talking points intended for allies in Congress to House Democrats. On Wednesday morning, the White House emailed its media strategy for defending President Trump against the charge that he tried to bribe or coerce Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate the son of former Vice President Joe Biden in a phone call on July 25. Along with House Republicans who will likely be asked about the impeachment inquiry every time they speak to the media, the president’s team also sent them to some of the Democrats investigating him, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. According to copies of the emails obtained by Yahoo News, about 40 minutes after sending the talking points out, the White House attempted to recall them. Photo illustration: Yahoo News; photos: AP, via Twitter The talking points urge allies to reiterate that Trump made no promises to Zelensky and that he didn’t bring up his personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, until his Ukrainian counterpart brought him up. The White House memo summarizing the conversation, released to the public a few hours before, shows that Trump sought Zelensky’s cooperation as a “favor,” but does not contain a specific offer of a quid pro quo. At the time, much-needed American military aid for Ukraine had been held up for unexplained reasons, reportedly at the request of the White House. The completeness of the memo cannot be independently verified. The White House referred to it as a transcript, but the document itself states it is “not a verbatim transcript of a discussion” but rather “the notes and recollections of Situation Room Duty Officers and [National Security Council] policy staff assigned to listen and memorialize the conversation in written form as the conversation takes place.” Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., told MSNBC that the White House had called Republicans in Congress to look over the memo and go over talking points before its release. Congress has called for the White House to release the details of a complaint by an unnamed whistleblower in the intelligence community, related to Trump’s dealings with Ukraine, that is the basis of the impeachment investigation announced by Pelosi Tuesday. https://www.yahoo.com/news/white-house-impeachment-talking-points-democrats-email-recall-170508969.html Open mouth insert foot.

  12. The White House on Wednesday released a memo summarizing President Trump’s controversial July 25 phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky in which Trump repeatedly urged Zelensky to investigate Joe Biden and his son Hunter, who sat on the board of a Ukrainian gas company during Biden’s term as vice president. Biden at the time was in the lead for the Democratic nomination to run against Trump in 2020. Even before the memo was released, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi acceded to mounting calls from fellow Democrats to open a formal impeachment inquiry against the president. Trump referred to the five-page document as a transcript. But the memo itself cautions that the text is “not a verbatim transcript of a discussion” but rather “the notes and recollections of Situation Room Duty Officers and [National Security Council] policy staff assigned to listen and memorialize the conversation in written form as the conversation takes place.” https://www.yahoo.com/news/full-memo-transcript-trump-phone-call-ukraine-president-zelensky-biden-151319799.html Once again Trump has mislead his people... It is not a transcript as he told the public, it is a memo which is someone's written opinion, not what was spoken. Is anyone not surprised he would once again decieve the people to protect his lack of leadership and to hide his lack of comprehension of what it means to be the president. Can someone pass me a Sharpie? B/A
  13. Thanks Pitcher... Obviously it was humor... Like all the humor people throw at Obama or Clinton or Pelosi or Mitch, or any of the many crooked and corrupt people in D.C. You are right I don't like Trump's policies or his untruthfulness. I read you post somewhere today about all the corrupt politicians in D.C.. To be honest I don't know why Trump gets a pass... He has the military staying at his resort in Scotland. Making lot's of money off taxpayers. He tells American companies they better build here and employ here, but his crap is made in China or Vietnam. There are many things I think he says and does that are inappropriate for an American president. You said I don't post things other than to agitate. That's not quite true. I post many things worth debating, but usually I get nothing but cute sarcastic comments from some, incoherent ramblings from another sand lot's of rubies without rebuttal. Politics do bring out the worse in all of us. My comments in financial postings are only about trying to inform people that markets are overvalued, their money isn't safe and the bull market can't last forever. Do you know what I get when I post those.. Rubies. But I always enjoy your comments and level-headiness. And I really enjoy our conversations about investing. As for politics, I have cut back and will do more cutting back, because it really doesn't amount to anything. B//A
  14. Deep State... Fake News... Not his fault... Obama wasn't a citizen.... Clinton did it. B/A
  15. Sorry man I thought you were being lighthearted considering all the spamming that hits these threads... My Bad.... B/A
  16. All that said, and with most I do agree, however, be honest, should a president of the United States inject himself? I remember when the media mentioned his kid, the world went crazy including him... He should know better... JMHO B/A
  17. I see it as a grown man sarcastically picking on a little girl... Not very dignified or presidential, but I knew his followers would approve. So what's you kid's twitter account let's see how you like it when it is personal... I'm just kidding of course, I don't Twitter and if I did I wouldn't be picking on children. B/A,

  19. Wow back to the birther conspiracy? Seriously? Everyone knows that one is out the window... What next more Clinton? You guys need to follow your leader and come up with a new plan... At least he keeps it fresh. B/A
  20. I think if you agree or disagree with her is your business... For the president of the United States to troll a teenager on Twitter is simply a show of bad taste... Anyone who thinks it is okay that he trolled a teenager needs to look at their kids and see how they would feel if the president decided to bully them... Money can buy a lot of things, but it can't buy class. B/A
  21. Wealthy Investors Preparing for Meltdown With Stocks Near Records Though stock prices are at an impressively high point, signs pointing to a recession have prompted the wealthiest investors to take 5 crucial steps to protect their investments going forward, according to wealth management advisors like Ashley Folkes at Moors & Cabot, per an in-depth report by Business Insider. These 5 steps include: selling off bonds, stockpiling cash in order to increase liquidity, turning to ETFs as a shield from potential market troubles, paying down debt and playing it safe in the market. Ultra-wealthy investors have taken these steps even as other investors have occasionally moved in the opposite direction; while many investors have rushed to buy bonds, wealth managers are encouraging a sell-off as a result of the inverted yield curve which has decimated many bonds' value Steps to Prepare In spite of recent stock market highs, prominent figures including Deutsche Bank Chief GLobal Strategist and Head of Asset Allocation Binky Chadha have pointed to increasing signs a recession is on the way. Chadha explains that his firm "would argue you want to be defensively positioned" and that "the U.S. equity market has run way, way ahead of growth," per a report by Barron's. Here are some steps investors may consider taking to protect their investments: Sell Off Bonds By limiting exposure to bonds, investors can also reduce exposure to interest rate fluctuations and general market turmoil. In a recession, these two elements will be abundant. Boost Liquidity With Cash In a recession, access to liquidity is essential. Keeping a more sizable proportion of your investments as cash holdings can help to limit overall portfolio risk and has the added benefit of providing a tool to capture investment opportunities that may be available at a bargain during a recession. Embrace the ETF For those investors who don't wish to give up too much of a stake in equities until a recession seems even more likely, index low volatility ETFs could be a good option, according to Folkes. Top-quality dividend-paying stocks with substantial histories of success may also be a safer bet. Reduce Debt Capitalize on relatively low interest rates by refinancing and paying off debts now, thereby allowing you to save more money. Stop Trying to Play the Market For all investors, ultra-wealthy or otherwise, a key to weathering a recession is to not game the system too much. Indeed, making too many significant changes to a portfolio can throw off risk tolerance, asset allocation and more. What's Next? Although a recent report by Barron's highlights "doomsday scenarios" including the ongoing U.S.-China trade war, the potential for major infrastructure damage as a result of cyberattacks, or widespread deflation, it's important to keep in mind that long-term investment strategies are typically designed to accommodate times of economic turmoil. Investors looking to follow the defensive strategies of the ultra-wealthy would be wise to keep that in mind before entirely upending an approach to investments. https://www.investopedia.com/wealthy-investors-preparing-for-meltdown-with-stocks-near-records-4771242?utm_campaign=quote-yahoo&utm_source=yahoo&utm_medium=referral&yptr=yahoo As they say "follow the money" or keep believing the con job coming out of D.C....

  22. No no no… That's fake news... In fact whenever he does dumb stuff that's the fake Donald... Don't you know by now that nothing is ever his fault? B/A
