ZTE deal

In case Fox news didn't cover this, Trump recently reversed his administration's stance on doing business with ZTE, a Chinese telecom company (because Chinese jobs matter!):

Then, not less than 72 hours later, this:

The guy is corrupt. And to be fair, I'm not saying Hillary would be less corrupt. Just that he is a self serving swamp thing.

Would love to hear why I am wrong about this.... go!

@Tom C: "Carrot and stick."

@Tom C: "Carrot and stick."

China ponying up half a billion to a Trump backed venture sounds more like trading the public's carrot for a carrot that he is pocketing. By the transitive property, he is stealing a carrot from the American people.

Unfortunately we voted in

Unfortunately we voted in another shyster into the white house, go figure? Maybe the new world order is playing 15 dimensional pinochle with us, or are we just a sucker for thinking that voting for some schhole changes shit.

Caveat we did get rid of the back braced criminal HRC that will never be prosecuted because heh she is one of the elite and you might wind up dead on a DC street, no one wants that.

Trump same ole same ole you know what? Stay with the Q plan, another farce a lot.

From the 2nd link above:

From the 2nd link above: Still, “even if this deal is completely and entirely above board, it simply furthers the perception of impropriety”

Wow, the appearance of impropriety is back! Where has it been during all the time since 1991???

Even though there is no

Even though there is no evidence, it's the seriousness of the charge that mandates we investigate this.

Democrat motto.

Exactly Tom. In their eyes it

Exactly Tom. In their eyes it's always the seriousness of the charge. It never has anything to do with the validity.

Wait a minute - Trump is

Wait a minute - Trump is backtracking on ZTE?
You mean, he can actually recognize an error on his own part and fix a terrible policy before it does too much damage?
I'm amazed.

Trump has become just a

Trump has become just a different flavor of the Clinton/Bush/Obama POTUS, there is nothing to see there. Next!

Did we have a similar conversation after the Chimp was elected? "you are either with us or you are with the terrorists" .

Here's a hint, you do not appoint John Bolton to be your NS advisor, unless ... don't have to say it.

The more I watch what Trump does, the more I understand how easily he is controlled, now I think Bush/Obama was more easily controlled than Trump, but it is just a matter of degree arrogance and stupidity between the POTUS as to what they hang their "legacy" on. I'm thinking Trump's might be the hollywood presstitute sex crap weirdness, but hopefully not ww3.

Yeah, I didn't even bother to

Yeah, I didn't even bother to bring up Bolton, since I assumed everyone would just become a neo-con in lock step w/ whatever it was that Trump was angling towards.
