And Trump continues his "Let's try to undermine NATO wile I suck up to dictators" world tour... the return on Putin's investment is turning out to be unbelievably good for him.

In other news, looks like the GOP Senate is preparing to rubber stamp another Trump appointee for a critical position at Justice who is utterly unqualified to hold it but has the one single line item on his resume.... "Loyal to Trump".

Oh and one other one.... "worked for Russian bank that is involved in the Mueller probe and was on the Trump transition team and so is a potential witness, at minimum, in the Mueller probe". And on the "Loyal To Trump" theme has refused to state he would recuse himself from Russia Investigation matters despite that massive conflict of interest.

Brian Benczkowski has literally NO experience with criminal prosecution. At all. Never tried a criminal case. Never filed a motion in a criminal proceeding. Never even tried a CIVIL case in a Federal court.

Trump is giving him the leadership of the DOJ's entire Criminal Division. A MAJOR posting. This is not a political position. This is a central position at the Justice Department that is supposed to be highly NON political and granted based on merit and ability to do the job.


And the erosion of the checks and balances continues, with the GOP and Trump supporters eagerly cheering it on. Let's just repeat this to be clear... the ONLY qualification Benczkowski has for this job is "Trump loyalist". That is IT. There is no other reason that he would possibly be under consideration for this post.

Wanting to roll back a number of EPA regulations. The clean water and air acts. He wants to repeal what he calls "job killing" environmental rules. Job killing? And the headway he's already made in this area.

I suppose he doesn't think dead, unhealthy or dying people to be job killing.

I also have an aunt and uncle who talks about how dirty New York appeared in the 60's.

Son, your mother says I have to hang you. Personally I don't think this is a capital offense. But if I don't hang you, she's gonna hang me and frankly, I'm not the one in trouble. —cthia's father. Incident in ? Axiom of Common Sense

Must be he thinks that this will cause people to forget that he is under investigation for links with Russia that could include irregularities in campaign finance and supporting the Russian agenda.
Maybe this is part of the pay back??? I just don't see any logic or rationale behind it.

Think that might be whatever ad played before the main video, which was Trump throwing an ignorant tantrum at a NATO meeting accusing GERMANY of being controlled by the Russians just because Russia sells some natural gas to Germany.

Before smr comes in with his bullshit justifications, here's some facts: Yes, Germany gets a good portion of its oil, natural gas and coal from Russia. But, while we are building a new pipeline to get more of the stuff, that doesn't change the fact that Russia depends on german money more than Germany does on russian ressources. If Russia were to boycott us tomorrow, we still have somewhere around half a year worth of resources (and a bunch of links to other suppliers) before things get critical.

We are not, in any sense of the word, beholden to Russia or Putin.

Unlike, say, a certain US President.

You know, something occurred to me. Trump is basically doing the "I know you are, but what am I" game. When he gets accused of something, he fires those accusations back, and thanks to folks like smr, he's getting away with it.

It's the kindergarten sandbox level of discourse he has always operated at...

Of course you not controlled by the Russians till they cut off the oil and natural gas over some dispute.

Now, why is Germany not paying 2% of GDP for military spending that was agreed to by all parties. Hey the US spends 60% of the military budget on NATO. The facts we should close all those bases in Germany and put these troops on the Southern US border. Cheaper and more economical for the US.
