Trump is only saying that now to prevent Obama from giving her a pardon. After Obama leaves office, we'll lock her up. Politically it may require the discovery of "new evidence", but that wouldn't be hard to orchestrate.

The current debates about facebook and 'false news' show just how big a part lies play in the government of the USA.

General(Ret) Mattis as Sec Def would be superb.


I hope he'll be willing to take the job.
Me as well, Lonewolf.

Trump's campaign promise (Hillary's really) is already coming true - bringing people together. Who knew two people of differing political ideologies could be brought together in agreement after such a contentious campaign?

Let us hope this is the beginning of reconciliation and reaching across (rather than around) the, er, aisle.

Quantum theory and much of particle science requires more than a bit of that old fashioned way of thinking. Pass the communion wafers and the wine, preacher, and let's see about finding that missing bit of Providence that lies betwixt the godless hairy primates and our divine, less hairy selves.

let's look at the bright side.

If Trump delivers gains in the economy perhaps we can some day again afford a democrat in the office

Let me help you with that one obgraham, the debates about facebook and 'false news' have been to do with whether the various false reports on facebook had an effect on the outcome or your recent elections.

Perhaps you believe the elections have no part in the government of your country and to be frank it could well be that they do not.

Since the Illuminati actually determine the presidency, the elections are just a sideshow. Clearly this year that was the case.

No, this year it really was the peoples' choice who got elected, in four years time it will be one of the Kardashians.

Not for Trump supporters who are, by your own admission, plainly congential liars who promote fraud and fabricate evdience.

It's far more likely that the FBI have told Trump that no matter how much more he pays them the evidence doesn't support an arraignment, let alone a conviction, and this "let her heal" stuff is a face-saving way of explaining why she won't be prosecuted.

Already Trump is showing his hand by choosing a Marine General for his Secretary of Defense!

SAS's reference notwithstanding, assuming Trump goes with Gen Mattis for Defense, a little incident this week reveals some of Mattis's character:

He received a Jury summons here in Eastern Washington State, like the rest of us do. Despite being busy applying for a job to save the world, he showed up, was placed on the jury, and did his duty quietly and responsibly. (Acquitted the defendant!)

Nobody would have known if the lawyers hadn't spilled the beans.

A real man, in every sense of the word.

" No, this year it really was the peoples' choice who got elected, in four years time it will be one of the Kardashians."

John Hill,

Not a new notion:


"As democracy is perfected, the office of the
President represents, more and more closely,
the inner soul of the people. On some great
and glorious day, the plain folks of the land
will reach their heart's desire at last and the
White House will be occupied by a downright
fool and complete narcissistic moron."

- H.L. Mencken, the Baltimore Evening Sun, July 26, 1920

We've already pulled this stunt.

I am still cackling with glee at the mental vision I have of Kanye West becoming First Spouse when Kim Kardashian gets elected president in 2020.

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro. ~ Hunter S Thompson

Of all the people who could write an interesting piece about Mr Trump getting elected as president, Thompson's wit and candor would be just what the doctor ordered. Sadly, he checked out a few years ago.

A US Attorney in New York is conducting more corruption investigations and has bagged the New York Governor's close staff on Federal Charges and the investigation continues.

This US Attorney is know to be an absolute Bulldog when it comes to going after corrupt public officials....no matter which political party they belong to or who they are.

Suggestions are.....the current investigations are focused upon New York Democrats that the Clinton's may have more liability than has been mentioned by the Media so far.

They best pray that this guy does not uncover anything new....because there shall be a new DOJ and Attorney General in place come January 20th.
