I don't see Trump bombing places like Libya, or Syria. I see Trump telling nations to "cut it out", and I see them cutting it out.

I don't know. How did Egypt react when Trump told them he didn't like the resolution they were going to introduce in the UN? How did China react when he took the call from Taiwan? How did Putin react when pissy boy tried to start a fight?

The press never fails to underestimated the God Emperor of the Cherry Blossom Throne.

I was listening to this wrestler guy on the Five the other day. He said it looks like President Trump is putting together a pretty good team to go after ISIS. He has the Russians and Israel. If we use Russian ground troops, American Air Power and Israeli special forces we could slaughter ISIS toot suite. I mean we know that neither the Russkis or the Jews will care too much about the rules of engagement or collateral damages. So if the God Emperor kills all the American lawyers it will be a snap. We are making an omelet here.

I thought that was a very astute insight. Very astute.

I don't think Trump thrills Lem.

I want results. If he doesn't build the stupid wall he promised.... everything else better be honkydori for me to vote for him again.

Trooper York said...

He will build the wall. And enforce current immigration law.

I already told you Lem. You don't have to worry. Your people come here in an inner tube. You should get upset if he builds a net not a wall.

Relax amigo.

Agree with Meth. Media publishing polls about Trump is a losing cause for the media. And yeah, I personally think he will do a far better job than Obama, who I can't recall handling any international crisis with anything other than putting his head in the sand. I think Iowahawk or someone had a tweet: "Russia annexs Crimea: Meh. Russia shots down a 777: Crickets. John Podesta clicks on the Nigerian Prince's email: Russia hacks must be punished." And frankly, that was one of Obama's best foreign policy decisions. I mean, look at his f'up with Egypt, Syria, Libya, and we all knew Iraq would get screwed. China now owns South China sea. Venezuela, where Obama backed their turn to socialism, is a basket case.

I don't care if Trump builds an actual wall. I'd be happy if he did, but I won't be upset if he doesn't. I just want him to enforce the laws and punish the cities that think they can trump what has always been in the realm of the federal government to control. If he does that; he will have done more than even the GOP of the Reagan era did in regards to immigration control.

Leland: I think those cities are going to double-down on sanctimony. They are going to say FU to Trump and the Feds. They are going to say FU to the rest of America. They are going to say "we are the only viable future of America so fund us or else."

ISIS doesn't stand a chance if we have enough troops like this guy.
