"The President Just Told a Room of Israelis That He "Just Got Back From the Middle East""
Some of the Israelis looked pleased with what Trump said. Others looked
like their faces had been keep in a freezer for several hours. After
Trump left, the Israelis showed and said exactly what they thought of
his lies and stupidity. Thumbs down.
You believe the left wing rag "slate"?
It isn't as if Slate is "The Nation."
As for "Middle East," it's a term of art. Want to see people froth?
Call it part of "the Orient."
"Western Asia" or "Southwestern Asia" includes Israel and Palestine,
but nothing in Africa, excepting Egypt, which like Turkey straddles
two continents. It is a less loaded term.
Conservatives, especially SoCons, don't read* enough outside their echo
chamber, nor watch TV news nor listen to news and opinion radio that
doesn't comfortably reinforce what they already believe. Some lefties
are like that, too, but the "left-wing media" excoriated by the right
is often seen as middle-of-the-road or right wing by the real hard core:
Sandernistas,† also people who think Bernie and Elizabeth Warren are
As a libertarian, while I can find plenty on the web to match my
point of view, broadcast and cable tend to restrict themselves to
the obsolete left-center-right spectrum. I have learned to graze
from sites and stations that lean one way or another, and average
the bias. What else can a free markets/non-interventionist/"social
liberal" do? John Stossel†† has stepped down from his Fox Business
show, and while I love Kennedy, she's too GOP-oriented for me.

You clowns will still be barfing when he finishes his 8th year as President.
Eight years with that senile old wannabe dictator? You can't be serious.
Clown Trump will be lucky to make it to the end of this year. Comey has
already parboileded Trump's gander.
Even if Trump rides this out, his "crazy outsider" persona will
probably not work in a reelection campaign. Maybe, if the
economy is roaring in 2020, and he is in good enough health,
he can win again. If times are tougher than that, he may face Jimmy
Carter's fate. If he's not in top shape, he may exit the contest,
especially if there's an insurgent GOP rival trying to undo whatever
changes to the Republican Party he may have set in place.
I wouldn't bet against his being brought down by scandal, like
Nixon, even one that hasn't happened yet. He's a scandal magnet.
so were the Clintons, but they had a finely-honed scandal-defense
operation, which The Donald lacks. In the private sector, he could
just write checks with NDA strings attached.

* Assuming they read. Earl posts here, but so he can type, but
the content makes one wonder if he comprehends anything he glances
at. He certainly ignores the real meaning of the group charter.
