Yeah, it's sad to see the United States influence in the world dropping so fast. The G7 leaders have pretty much written us of for now until we get a real president again. It's obvious nobody can stand Trump. And for good reason.

Trump is now denying that his resort has bedbugs.

Seems Eric Linder claimed the Doral's Jack Nicklaus vila had a bed bug infestation. According to the Miami Herald, Linder reached a settlement with the Doral in 2017.

I was thinking more along the lines of Dorals finances =https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...539_story.html

He is hardly a leader of the free world, of France, or even the four corners of his office. He is all talk, all BS talk.



Trump can pull the rug out from under the EU at any time. Just canceling military exercises with the former Warsaw Pact countries now in Nato and most of which are EU members now is going to lead to a lot of increasing uncomfortable soul search in the Baltic and Eastern edge of the EU in the face of the Russian bogeyman. There is nothing that France and Germany could really offer.


Declaring incorporation in Jersey, Monaco, Gibraltar, Malta, or Greek Cyprus or requiring full disclosure of all bank accounts held in Switzerland as a rebuttable suspected tax dodge would rip the guts out of a lot of EU businesses. May hurt some US business, but far less than those in the EU.


The EU needs the US more than the other way around.

Fascinating how opinion polls for UK prime ministers are usually very low, even for the relatively popular ones

30-40 percent approval is considered 'good' for them

Backing Israel isn`t upsetting the status quo but you`re correct about the president being popular with other countries. The world`s diplomats were smiling ear to ear when he spoke at the UN.

I have no idea how those in power have seen the world (do they even talk about the world?) and I very much doubt I have seen the world the way they have done.



Here is Canadian JJ McCullough his views of why Canada faces some hard issues in the future - primarily centering about the fact that French Canadians see themselves as the preferred minority while other minority groups are growing fast, why the French language requirement leads to qualified non-French speaking persons to be as a matter of reality being unqualified for national office, and the fact that Quebec wants reduced immigration while the rest of Canada wants increased immigration.

For sure, stats would be through the roof. Considering how he gets slammed 24/7 itís a miracle how he accomplishes anything. Itís a sickness really with the people against him constantly that want him to fail. They donít want him to do well and are still very angry and upset that he was elected.
