Just shows that you're a coward!


I'd like to hunt one if I was able.

You know there's nothing like the hunt of a big predator!

Trump's new acting Intel Director, Richard Grenell, previously worked for a corrupt foreign oligarch banned from entering the US.

He also failed to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, just like Flynn.

“Grenell used to do consulting work on behalf of an Eastern European oligarch who is now a fugitive and was recently barred from entering the US...In 2016, Grenell wrote several articles defending the oligarch...but did not disclose he was being paid.”

President Trump has once again put his political interests ahead of America’s national security interests by appointing an Acting Director of National Intelligence whose sole qualification is his absolute loyalty to the President.

'We've gone this far': Farmers stick with Trump over trade

By Katie Lobosco, CNN

Washington (CNN)From the very start, President Donald Trump's trade war was painful for American soybean farmers.

China's tariffs immediately wiped out what was once their biggest export market, worth $12 billion in 2017. That was more than a year ago. Soybeans have since piled up in bins, sending the amount in storage up 108% in 12 months. The price per bushel has fallen to a 10-year low.
The situation looks bleak, and tariffs have hit other crops like corn and wheat, too. Many farmers have expressed frustration, and some have even said they no longer support the President. But farmers, a politically important group for Trump, are staying afloat -- largely thanks to Trump's bailout -- and that's keeping some on board with Trump's trade war.
"At this point, we've gone this far, we want to make sure we get a good deal," said Iowa farmer Grant Kimberley, who also serves as director of market development at the Iowa Soybean Association.
Like many others, Kimberley was able to sell most of his soybeans last year -- but for a lower price. He just finished harvesting his soybeans this year, selling some and putting the rest in storage, waiting to see if prices go up. But with bills to pay, farmers can't hold onto the crop forever.
Trump has given about $28 billion -- about double the cost of the 2009 auto bailout -- to farmers hurt by the Chinese tariffs. The payments aren't meant to make up for their total losses, but it's helping bridge the gap.
"We'd rather have trade than aid. But it's been a godsend to have that, otherwise things would look pretty ugly," said Kimberley.
Years of struggle
A recent survey found that farmer sentiment is higher than it has been since 2016 and the US Department of Agriculture projected that farm income will be up 10% this year, to the highest level since 2014. But without government payments, which are expected to be up 64% in 2019, farm income would have actually shrunk.
The agricultural sector has been struggling for years. In 2016 farm income, without the subsidies, fell to just half of what it was three years before.
Trump's aid payments are a lifeline, but they're not saving everyone. Farm bankruptcies are up 24% compared to the year before, according to the American Farm Bureau.
"The latest round of trade aid to farmers provides critical support," said Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall in a statement this week, adding that a "further delay in reaching an agreement would make it hard for struggling farmers to hold on in the face of rising bankruptcy rates."
Still, some farmers see the bailout as evidence that the President still has their backs.
"I think it's important that the payments do highlight the fact that the administration understands the pressure they're putting on farmers and the rural economy," said Illinois farmer Evan Hultine. He decided to take soybeans out of rotation this year to try to avoid some of the trade uncertainty.
"We understand that maybe China needs to be brought to task for improper trade tactics and unfair practices, but we're looking at a year-and-half now," he added.
There's been numerous contradictory signals from both the United States and China about how close they are to reaching a deal. Trump suggested this week that he might wait until after the 2020 election.
Pennsylvania farmer Bill Boyd said he supported Trump's trade war originally, when he thought it would be wrapped up in a few months. But now that it's dragged on, he thinks it was a "bad idea."
"I think he's backstabbing the main people who got him into office in all those Midwest states who help to vote him in," Boyd said, but added that it's likely he will vote for Trump again.
"Unless they (Democrats) come up with a better alternative, I am going to vote for him again," he said.
Will the Chinese market come back?
If a China deal was signed tomorrow, Kimberley doesn't expect things to go back to normal for at least a year. The Chinese have started buying more from South America and may continue to do so. But there's hope that at least some of the orders will come back since China buys 60% of the world's traded soybeans.
Some farmers are less optimistic than others that a significant part of the Chinese market will return.
"You don't trade with partners that you don't trust, you just don't," said Marcy Svenningsen, who grows soybeans, corn and wheat in North Dakota.
The low price for soybeans have been painful for Svenningsen, but bad weather has brought on other challenges, resulting in "one of the worst years" she's seen. An early snowstorm destroyed some of her soybean crop. A pile of corn is sitting in her backyard because the crop is too wet to sell. And she also can't sell her wheat, which got infected with a disease because of the wet conditions.
But she received payouts from her government crop insurance plan for the damaged wheat, as well as aid from the trade mitigation package. She also has a job off the farm, which supplements her family's income. Still, she's holding off on making any equipment purchases, even though some things need to be replaced and expects to lose money this year.
"You know farmers, we just keep plowing ahead every single day. You just do it," she said.

Wow: Trump Given Incredible Welcome in India
Leah Barkoukis AP

To say President Trump was welcomed in India is an understatement. While thousands of people lined the streets to greet America’s 45th president, that was just the beginning. Trump and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke in Motera Stadium, the world’s largest cricket stadium, to an electrified crowd. The 110,000-seat arena was completely filled, and many were donning white caps that read “Namaste Trump” with the Indian and American flags on the brim.

“The First Lady and I have just traveled 8,000 miles around the globe to deliver a message to every citizen across this nation: America loves India — America respects India — and Americans will always be true and loyal friends to the Indian people,” Trump said in Gujarat.

He thanked India for the incredibly warm welcome they were given, saying they "will remember it forever."

"From this day on, India will always hold a very special place in our heart," he said.

The president is in the country to discuss bilateral trade and security issues.

The trip comes amid a tit-for-tat trade dispute between the two countries. Negotiators worked to try to secure a deal before Trump's visit, but talks fizzled over India’s protectionist policies and a scope of differences including e-commerce and digital trade, according to a senior administration official who briefed reporters ahead of the trip.

The U.S. wants more access to Indian markets on agricultural products and medical devices while India is aiming to restore its preferential status in a trade program for developing countries.

Trump said he planned to continue trade discussions with Modi during his visit, calling the prime minister a "tough" negotiator. He said he planned to make a "very very major - among the biggest ever - trade deals," but added talks were in "the early stages. (USA Today)

"I think that the Prime Minister and I can reach a fantastic deal that is good and even great for our two countries…except he's a very tough negotiator," Trump said.

The president also announced a $3 billion defense deal.

“The United States looks forward to providing India with the best and most feared military equipment on the planet. We make the greatest weapons ever made – airplanes, missiles, rockets, ships. We make the best, and we are dealing now with India,” Trump said.

“I am pleased to announce that tomorrow our representatives will sign deals to sell over $3 billion in the absolute finest, state-of-the-art military helicopters and other equipment to the Indian armed forces,” he added.
