Ah yes the new Hitler....by the way how did old Adolf and his pal Joseph use Twitter back then to further their evil scheme of World Domination?

This TDS thing is a very sinister thing it appears.....or is this yet another example of Godwin's Law in play?

About the confusion over Sweden...

Sweden to Trump: What happened last night? - BBC News

Of course, the BBC will automatically be accused of being biased...which in a sense they are, tonights news implied Tottenham would win the F.A. Cup for example, but, with regard to more serious matters, they are not.

As for Twitter, alas, a mass communication outlet not actually available during the period referred to.

I know, history can be rather lacking in detail at times, or possibly this period was covered at a higher grade than you left school at, otherwise, said Doctor would have surely been a avid user....

Finally, for the second time, a polite and not unreasonable question for those of us who don't communicate using initials...what does TDS actually stand for ?

" Trump Derangement Syndrome"


Thank you.

Although if the condition were spelt deranged, it would be a definitive diagnosis.

"Total Denial Syndrome" probably.
Something the do-gooders with OPM and lefties have mastered quite well.

It is exactly 10 years since the start of France's banlieue riots - the three weeks of violent street protest in the high-immigration suburbs, sparked by the accidental deaths of two teenagers after a police chase.
Plenty of money has been pumped into the banlieues - but has anything really changed?
It is with a depressing sense of familiarity that one reads this week the 10-year post-mortems on France's 2005 riots.
Everyone concedes that after the shock a lot was done to regenerate the "lost" neighbourhoods of Clichy, Grigny, Bobigny, et cetera.
Some 48bn euros has been spent in the past decade alone to rebuild housing and smarten up the "urban fabric".
To this can be added a further 100bn euros spent since the start of the 1980s, when the problem of disaffected suburban zones was first identified.
But by now everyone also agrees that money is quite evidently not the answer. If it was, this crisis would have been solved long ago.
For the depressing fact remains by just about every recognised criterion, the banlieues (or to be clear the large areas within city suburbs where populations mainly of north African and sub-Saharan origin live in blocks of council flats) are today in the same sorry state as before. If not worse.

Fears the banlieues could burn again - BBC News

I must have missed the point on this forum where it became permissible to call for someone to be murdered?
When Trump did it? - only fair to return the favour.

Can we apply that same reasoning to the thousand muslims refusing to integrate into our societies?
Or is that favour reserved just for the Donald?

While many Democrats suffer TDS, they ought learn their history--where they created segregation, denied citizens the vote, passed Jim Crow laws, and elected a segregationist, progressive to the Presidency.

The fact is progressives can only achieve power by dividing up the populace into groups and pitting them against each other. Welcome to identity politics.

Damn shame that Twitter won't/can't rescind his account.
Presumably he'd then switch to using the official white house account.
At which point they could rescind that too.
At least that'd stop his late night brain farts.
But then I `spose there'd be a slight Freedom of Speech issue there.
You're stuck with four years of inaction America.
As a times correspondent put it:

Predicting a limping administration that likely will hang on despite its moral and political collapse, he sketches the coming years: "It means an administration that is passive, full of sound and fury but signifying nothing.

"To get anything done, a President depends on the vast machinery of the US government. But Trump doesn't mesh with that machinery. He is personality-based while it is rule-based. Furthermore, he's declared war on it.

"And when you declare war on the establishment, it declares war on you."

And there's your problem--the establishment is supposed to answer to the voters, to to itself. The establishment has decided they run the US, not the voters.

The majority of Americans and voters are against Trumpet. The above 50 IQ Trump supporters will switch to anti when they loose their health care, exports of their products dry up, and coal doesn't come back because natural gas is cheaper so there go the red states. One wonders if he will make 6 months. Now that his Russian connections have been exposed even Trumpet would not lift sanctions on Russia for fear of a Congress. Therefore, he is now a liability to Putin and we all know what happens to them. Hey Donnie, drink the tea for the good of the country.

Unfortunately I think he will last the four years.
The checks and balances will ensure he can't do anything really extreme.
He'll stop just short of doing anything that would cause a republican Congress to want to impeach him.
That's if he doesn't come unstuck at a more serious point.
I think the really worrying point comes when his ego is bruised and frustrated enough to do something stupid militarily.
For example - the Carl Vinson is in the South China Sea right now... how is someone with such a demonstrable lack of judgment or emotional maturity going to handle a flashpoint incident that might only be able to be resolved in a matter of hours, and require very cool, analytical thinking?
Imagine a situation where we suddenly have a few conventional TLAMs being thrown around those islands, or a Chinese vessel sunk - all because a clearly unfit President wants to appear strong?

The Sultan,

You do know the only poll that counts is the one every four years, the one Trump won? So, your answer in resistance us advocating a foreign power assassinate the president? How open to diversity you "progressives" are until there is actual diversity. The Left is truly deranged--they are, in one month, asking for either the CIA or Russia to kill the Presudent because they don't foresee him being impeached. And you guys thought Republicans were crazy over Obama. Mere bagatelle.

No, he'd switch to one of the SJW-free alternatives, like Gab. And Twitter would just circle the drain much faster.

But it's good to see the left continue doubling-down into madness. They might actually be able to achieve something if they threw out the SJWs and returned to something resembling sanity.

"And when you declare war on the establishment, it declares war on you."
And absolutely hilarious to see the left Standing Up For The Man. They don't even realize that they're now the Squares trying to stop the kids having fun, and the right are the cool, leather-jacketed rebels.

Do they not have any idea how they look to people outside their inbred left-wing enclaves? Or do they just not care?

How can tea offered by a person Trumpet calls a great leader he admires be a call for such a dispicable act? Not like calling for Second Adm solutions which Trump himself did against his opponent. What evidence due you have?

The last sentence, the word "do" is not spelled "due". Considering Putin's reputation for inventive ways of assassination, there is no other interpretation for your post calling for assassination. He may have called for it, but that's not justification for liberals doing so.

...and those 'Democrats' have shifted party alliances to the GOP all across the southern states. Any suggestion today's GOP is the party of minorities is laughable.

The fact is progressives can only achieve power by dividing up the populace into groups and pitting them against each other. Welcome to identity politics.
Actually divide and conquer was a principal strategy of Karl Rove and the Bush II team. They used racism to attack Senator John McCain during the primary, and continued divisive strategies all the way through the general election. To say divisive strategies were not part of team Trump, is akin to saying Trump's first 4 weeks in orifice have been a study in perfection.
