What is Trump thinking?

I am torn between two theories:

#1 - He was borderline crazy and has now gone over the edge. He's probably not sleeping much and it's clear he can no longer remember what he said even a day or so ago.

#2 - He never really wanted to be president - just wanted to prove he could be if he wanted to. Closer it gets the harder it gets and he's not having fun any more.
He will keep on driving the GOP crazy by being unpredictable and unreasonable to push them to the point of "un-nominating" him - before the convention or after - doesn't really matter.

They will be scrambling trying to play catch up and get another candidate in there and he will be milking his revenge. After all, they caused it - not him.

In the meantime, his "supporters" in all their genius will throw him some riots he's worked so hard to build up.

Just Donald being Donald.

Somebody needs to get out there quick and

explain to his supporters in plain fourth grade English that this is the opposite of what he has been telling them all along.

As he is letting Ryan remake him into a "real" unified Republican, he's going to be flying by the seat of his expensive, foreign made pants. He's been telling his crowds a bunch of stuff they wanted to hear, and I'm betting now they don't want him and his new congressional buddies to take medicare and social security away from them.

There's no logical way to reconcile the huge numbers who attend and support Bernie at his rallies and the discrepancies in the numbers voting for Hillary.

We have all watched the media ignore crowds and events for Bernie - I think we've all come to expect that.

But now there's a ton of recent articles reporting fake twitter followers and we know the money David Brock has poured into fake and purchased social media opposition. I think Hillary has really hurt herself with her alliance with him. I know she had to feel like she had no one to stick up for her and I guess he did (read his book Blinded by the Right) but that didn't change him into a nice guy. He's a snake from the same family as Karl Rove.

I'm so disappointed in Democrats if they are engaged in voter fraud!

Once again I bail out of Hillary's boat on the way to the primaries.

And for the same reason - except MORE SO.

I changed my mind about Hillary the first time because I decided she was more hawkish than Obama. I was among that huge group of people with a belly full of Bush and war. Obama hasn't done everything to my liking but he's my best President in my adult 72 years. It kind of took me back when he appointed her secretary of state, but we still managed (in spite of John McCain and other war mongers) to stay out of another whole scale war. I voted for him twice and am proud of those votes.

My real favorite in this race is Bernie, but I worried he could pull it off because of lacking minority support - if I had to, I was prepared to vote for Hillary. But not after her Iran speech. It showed who she really is and I cannot vote for a neocon. I have been watching and reading, trying to figure out where Hillary stood since I just learned a few months ago that Victoria Nuland Kagan was on her staff at the State Department. Not only that, Nuland has also been promoted to Secretary of State for European affairs.

Does everyone know who Victoria Nuland is? I have had to dig to find out.

This is MRS. PNAC. She is the wife of Robert Kagan, co-founder of Project for the New American Century, which group helped hustle us into the Iraq war. (Remember their famous line, "To get the support we would need would require an event like another Pearl Harbor". Well, somebody worked that out for them, didn't they?)

Nuland is currently handling all things Ukraine for the State Department and doing all she can to keep our relationship with Russia f'd up. There's any number of articles worth your time to get a sense of who Hillary is (and has been) hanging with - just GOOGLE Nuland's name.


Exclusive: Victoria Nuland and Robert Kagan have a great mom-and-pop business going. From the State Department, she generates wars and – from op-ed pages – he demands Congress buy more weapons. There’s a pay-off, too, as grateful military contractors kick in money to think tanks where other Kagans work, writes Robert Parry.
Neoconservative pundit Robert Kagan and his wife, Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, run a remarkable family business: she has sparked a hot war in Ukraine and helped launch Cold War II with Russia – and he steps in to demand that Congress jack up military spending so America can meet these new security threats.
This extraordinary husband-and-wife duo makes quite a one-two punch for the Military-Industrial Complex, an inside-outside team that creates the need for more military spending, applies political pressure to ensure higher appropriations, and watches as thankful weapons manufacturers lavish grants on like-minded hawkish Washington think tanks.

Do you think they've already been told the Supremes are going to

kill ACA?

It troubled me this weekend when I heard Lamar Alexander announce they were working on a plan.

These people are inherently lazy and without ideas - they don't do stuff they don't absolutely have to.

Perhaps the lights finally came on (half the country may be furious if R's are finally successful in killing ACA through the Court). Republicans will be blamed when everyone loses coverage and the insurance industry goes bust. Or they've been told what their pawns on the court plan to do. It is supposed to be effective in June.

I'm sick of Israel and Netanyahu.

Netanyahu is a warmonger who can't wage war without US backing so he spends his days and nights figuring out how to get the US into war.

He has no business meeting with the US Congress and Boehner has no right to invite him there when his only reason is to circumvent the U S President. If it is legal for Boehner to do this why does it feel so treasonous? For a congress that is too chicken to even hold a vote in public about engaging militarily in the world, how do the Republicans plan to explain the war with Iran caused by this irresponsible action.

Has any one heard any Republican call Boehner out for this? I haven't.

Remember that North Korea was on PNAC's wish list.

NK was among those "ENEMIES" that included Iraq, Iran, Syria, etc., PNAC listed as their targets for the new W.Bush adminstration, while they announced they would need something like another Pearl Harbor to glean the kind of support they needed to accomplish their imperial dreams.

We don't want to stumble into another war for trumped up reasons. Be very watchful when TPTB start looking for reasons they should be hated and reviled.

It's more than worrying - it's dangerous

that these people are that immature and that well armed!!!

Makes beheading look downright kindly, don't it?

F'kin makes me so angry.

How dare them torture in my name and call themselves PATRIOTS.
