    With all of the untruths spouted by, not only the POTUS himself, but several of his closest advisors, I cannot understand how others simply brush the lies aside as if they meant nothing. I never thought I'd see the day when such blatant acts would happen on a daily basis. Not only is the administration up to its neck in the Russia investigation, more lies are exposed as if there wasn't enough to begin with.

    Feel free to join in the discussion if you can be reasonable and not use questionable sources to base your claims.

      Why would anybody trust any politician, about any thing or at any time?  Not a one knows the difference between truth and lie - that one of the people in the cabinet was caught is surely nothing new on the American political field.

      It does make a great talking point, though - sure to increase divisiveness and hatred in people that don't like Trump.  Very useful for tearing the people apart while claiming that Trump is doing it.

        Hey Dan, are you saying all presidents and their cabinet tell as many lies on a daily basis as Trump's crowd? Where do you get this from? Seriously, people all over the world are laughing at him!

        I'd be pleased to look at any evidence you have for your claims. By the way, it's just been reported Flynn has been caught in ANOTHER lie, Doh! A whistleblower received a text from Flynn saying the Russian sanctions would be dropped after Trump took office. Why so many lies if Trump and his cronies are innocent of wrongdoing, Dan? Inquiring minds an all that.....

          I haven't kept count.  Did you? 

          Do you think anyone on the hill is innocent of all wrongdoing, Randy?  Or do you just pick on Trump because of a bad case of TDS?

          (Have to say that the only "inquiring mind" here is the one desperately seeking anything that even might look muddy and can be thrown.)

            Dan, you didn't say if you thought Trump and his cronies have lied more than other admins or are they simply the norm. If the latter, then explain why if you please?

              I plainly said I hadn't bothered to count.  I also asked if you had, but you seem to have refrained from answering that question.

              I'll add that it is pretty normal for a politician to lie.  Almost every time their mouth opens.

                You honestly believe that the level of lying displayed by Donald Trump is on par with previous presidents?  There are numerous articles to be found online about how his lying compares to other politicians and previous presidents.  There is no need for Randy or anyone else here to count every lie.  They are well documented online.

                  PP, if you've followed this sub-thread you've seen me say, not once but twice, that I haven't counted.  There is no possibility of converting that statement into one saying I believe Trump does, or does not, lie more than other presidents.  Not honestly, anyway.

                  No, I haven't researched whether other people think he lies more or less, either.  I simply don't care as I find that all politicians lie, and lie on a regular basis.

                  As far as being documented: I will agree that a liberal press, and a severely divided country with a very angry liberal half, have documented every falsehood, intentional or not, that Trump has said. 

                  If you absolutely insist on what I think (as opposed to know) I will say that Trump exaggerates badly (a lie), is often mistaken (claimed by many to be a lie) and is extremely careless about how he says what he says (again claimed to be a lie by a great many).  I doubt that he has actually, intentionally lied any more than most politicians/presidents. 

                  Of course, I consider telling half the story to be lying.  I consider a slight spin to give the impression that something is true when it isn't to be a lie.  Any time, regardless of the method, that something untrue is intended to be the conclusion drawn by a listener/reader it is a lie.  Intent is king here, not methodology and not technicalities.

              I haven't found or heard of a reason to lock Trump up yet.  Lots and lots of ridiculous claims and spewing of hate, but no actual reasons.

              Hillary, on the other hand, absolutely committed crimes - crimes that other people paid for when they did similar things but that she got away with scott free.  When that investigation started I said she would never be prosecuted, guilty or not, and that turned out to be correct.  Trump I'm not so sure of - he simply does not have her extreme power base to help him out.  Instead he's hated by both sides as a clear danger to their way of life.

                You didn't address the last point I made about sexual predators but it was simply sarcastic at any rate. I do want to ask you a question I've asked other Trump advocates but they don't seem to want to answer, instead they want to go the old Hillary, Obama did this and that instead of answering. I hope you won't disappoint me by doing the same. I do agree with you on the religious forums most of time, just so you know I'm not being completely contrary. tongue

                The question is-If Trump is proven to have colluded with the Russians to affect the presidential election, will you still stick by him?

                  Not being difficult - it is an honest question and your reply will dictate my answer.

      When you have a president who lies daily, then you can't believe anything he says.  One of his current new fictions is that it isn't his voice on the Hollywood Access tape.  Really.  When the tape originally surfaced, he admitted he said those things and he apologized for it, now he expects us to believe it isn't his voice.  Trump thinks his base is stupid.  He thinks they will believe anything he says.  Billy Bush, who lost his job for merely laughing with Trump on that tape, is coming out to say it most definitely is Donald Trump talking.  This is just one example of the laughable, ridiculous falsehoods that emerge from his mouth on an almost daily basis.

      Mike Flynn, Paul Manaford, Rick Gates, and George Papadopoulos, all associated with the campaign or administration of Trump, have been indicted on criminal charges.  Four indicted in the first year.  This is unprecedented in presidential history.  Obama had zero indictments of any officials in eight years. 

      I wonder, too, how anyone can keep supporting him, but I believe it is not their belief in Trump and his criminal cohorts that they are supporting but their own decisions.  It's sometimes hard to admit we've made a mistake.

        He (Obama) was good, wasn't he?  As in really, really good.  I'm sure it helped to have the likes of Billy to run interference with the law and keep the guilty out of jail, but still, he has to have been good to go 8 years without even an indictment.  Powerful, smart politicians can do wonders when it comes to burying facts and prosecutions.

    Let me quote a headline from the washington post. "Clinton campaign, DNC paid for research that led to Russia dossier." I wonder if clinton had been elected that the same people now would really be clamoring for any real investigation. After more than one year, and millions spent, we have solid proof of clinton and the russians.

    1. Valeant profile image96
      Valeantposted 9 months agoin reply to this

      Stephen, you do realize that the dossier was initially funded by someone in the GOP, running against Trump in the primary.

      Second, regardless of the fact that BOTH parties contributed funding to the dossier, you haven't disproven it's facts just by tying it to the Clinton campaign.  Your own feelings towards her honesty make you doubt its contents, but that's not real evidence that the claims made in the dossier are, in fact, false.

      Third, it's the job of the FBI to investigate those kinds of claims.  People like Comey and Mueller have obviously found merit to investigate further, to either prove or disprove the things held in there.  During this process, Comey was removed in what many consider to be Obstruction of Justice because Trump admitted that the investigation was a consideration in the firing on two separate occasions.  Once to Lester Holt on national television and the second time to the Russians in the Oval Office a few days later.

      So your attempt to undermine the dossier just by linking it to Clinton holds no water here.

        Putting God first is exactly why you have a separation.  What about those who don't believe in God the way you do?  Or those who don't believe in a God at all?  There are so many forms of religion that to run a government based on how people adhere to their form of religion would be discriminatory, to say the least.

          No body is imposing their religion or belief on anyone else. That is the first Amerndment.
          The separation of church and state has been perverted by the ACLU and our Supreme Court. The founders was trying to prevent the government from over reaching and establish a state religion...
          Not the other way around. Down through our history, our officials have started their sessions with a prayer and in the distant past, many government affairs were conducted in local churches...

    Nobody would impose their religion or belief on anyone?  I can think of two issues right off the bat where legislation is tied directly to religious beliefs - marriage rights and abortion.  How legislators vote is a direct reflection on religious beliefs, so to say the issue wouldn't be compounded might not be accurate.

      That is right. You picked two issues that were ruled by the Supreme Court, bypassing the American people. You wonder why we are so divided as a nation...
      The question of marriage was religious based but not exclusively. Down through our history and with multiple civilizations, the marriage was understood to be between a man and a women for the purpose of producing off spings...and a family unit. It was established long ago that it was the best form for a society to organize and insure transition from one generation to the next, legally and morally.
      With abortion, science has determined thst life begins at conception. How a fetus is viable outside the womb is debatable as to the time duration, 7, 8 or 9 months...
      The Supreme Court originally ruled to legalize abortion but wanted it to be rare and as the last resort...
      Today, we are debating on late term abortions and the right of the mother to choose in some cases at the point of delivery...That was never the intent of the original ruling.

        "With abortion, science has determined thst life begins at conception."

        Is a sperm cell then not living?  An egg?  It would seem that life begins long before conception...unless you refer to human life, but there science has nothing at all to say.

        "The Supreme Court originally ruled to legalize abortion but wanted it to be rare and as the last resort..."

        The SCOTUS does not, or at least never should, rule according to what it wants.  Not a single judge on that court is supposed to rule according to his or her wants, but only according to the law.

          That last statement IS what has effected many many court rulings in the last decade or two  alone  , especially the federal circuit courts ,   look at  the travel ban alone .  These judges are now as personally corrupted as is any politician .

          Too isolated  a lifestyle ?

            No, not too isolated.  Too powerful: absolute power corrupts absolutely, and their power is very nearly absolute.  Couple that with a decided lack of ethics and you get just what we have.

            But having said that I can certainly understand how a moral stance is going to affect a perfectly honest interpretation of the law.  And I'm sure that happens...perhaps all of 1% of the time!

              This certainly cannot be that we are at an all time high in ideological polarization .
              The SCOTUS too  ? Why not , right .

      You can add prohibition (even today, hundreds of counties are "dry"), Sunday blue laws and preferential tax breaks for churches.  Our nation has seen laws requiring church attendance, and Puritans (knowing that we are born on the same day of the week we were conceived) punished the parents of children born on Sunday.

    Wilderness , Recently talked to a friend who went to a nuke plant for a work related visit , drove right in  ,  right by the guards , went  to the main buildings , asked someone ; "Was I really supposed to have just done that ?"

    The official just looked down at the ground and said ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,",No "

    How can you fix that ?

      Fire the guards and hire someone that will do their job.  Put a couple of MP's with assault rifles (real ones, not fake) at every entrance and roving guards around the perimeter.  Flood the place with electronic eyes of various sorts.  Electrify fencing with killing voltage.

      Of which only the first one will be acceptable.
