LOL, you can rest easy Timbo, you're utilizing powerful armory while simpleton is at best, pulling out his trusty peashooter. Another revelation that you are the clear victor, name calling is his weapon of choice but those spit wads are barely making it to the end of the straw.

For The First Time In A Very Long Time, An American President Stared Down China & China Blinked
Posted on November 13, 2017 by DCWhispers



Donald Trump arrived at the APEC summit with a bit of swagger. Though already a naturally tall and broad-shouldered man, he stood bigger than life among his world leader contemporaries as a petulant Establishment Media did all it could to downplay the aura of strength that followed Mr. Trump everywhere he went. Gone was the rapid gun-chewing insecurity that marked Barack Obama’s participation in such gatherings. There was no apologizing for America’s past. No remarking how the United States owed others. No hiding from the fact that in an increasingly volatile and complicated world, America remains the one true superpower.

And despite the media’s fake obsession with Russia these days, it is China that poses the single greatest challenge to U.S. superiority throughout the world. It has been China that has expanded the scope of its economy and influence by leaps and bounds nearly unchecked by any rival, America or other, for some fifty years. Then came Donald Trump, a political outsider but a worldly man familiar with the workings of Chinese government and business. Mr. Trump strode up to China’s President Xi, firmly grasped his hand, looked him in the eyes, and delivered an unapologetic “America First” message that sent ripples of stunned admiration through the entire delegation.

It was glorious. The Establishment Media will never report that fact. It will never participate in the truth of how strong and proud is Mr. Trump’s representation of this nation as he stands literally and figuratively towering over other world leaders.

Many thought Xi would get the better of Trump at the APEC summit. That didn’t happen as reported here by the Washington Examiner:

…Trump continued, “When the United States enters into a trading relationship with other countries or other peoples, we will, from now on, expect that our partners will faithfully follow the rules just like we do. We expect that markets will be open to an equal degree on both sides, and that private industry, not government planners, will direct investment.”

It was a message that struck implicit contrast with China. Trump wants nations to know that he seeks expanded trade, but with safeguards to prevent the dumping, intellectual property theft and market access restrictions that current affect too many arrangements. For all of Xi’s pleasant words, the audience knew that China is the number one offender in everything Trump mentioned. They also know that the U.S. imports far more from the region that it exports, so they have a vested interest in continuing to keep America on the side. These are America’s trump cards.

To conclude, Trump cleverly returned the historical argument. He noted that America’s priority was protection for “individual rights, and freedom of navigation and overflight, including open shipping lanes. Three principles and these principles create stability and build trust, security, and prosperity among like-minded nations.”



As audience followed that “shipping lanes” line with applause, Xi must have felt uncomfortable. After all, he knows that everyone in attendance is greatly concerned by China’s efforts to militarize the East and South China Sea shipping lanes. In turn, Xi fears these nations continuing to believe the American rule-of-law based system is the better than his alternative.

He is right to be concerned.

————

The applause among Asian leaders for POTUS Trump’s speech (with the exception of China) was thunderous and far surpassed anything received overseas in eight years by Barack Obama. It points to something Mr. Obama and his supporters never understood. Much of the world does not hate America – it envies it, it emulates it, it wants to stand with it. Some of the greatest cesspools against American values come not from places like Japan, Vietnam, or India, but rather the American media, Congress, and U.S. universities. It is a form of collective self-loathing that leaves the world shaking its head at us.

No more. Donald Trump loves his country and he also happens to be its president. The world is taking notice and if the response to Mr. Trump at the APEC summit is any measure, they are very glad to have a strong and confident America back and open for business.

WASHINGTON &#8213; Senate Republicans are increasingly lining up behind the women accusing Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore (R) of sexual misconduct, saying he shouldn’t be able to serve given the disturbing allegations against him.

“The women who have come forward are entirely credible,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) declared Tuesday. “He’s obviously not fit to be in the United States Senate.”

But ask those Republicans if they believe the women who accused President Donald Trump of sexual assault, and the conversation is over.


“Look, we’re talking about the situation in Alabama,” McConnell told HuffPost, when asked about Trump’s accusers. “I’d be happy to address that if there are any further questions.”

Moore’s scandal has put his party in an incredibly uncomfortable predicament: the more Republicans say the allegations by five women against Moore are proof that he doesn’t belong in the Senate, the more hypocritical they look for ignoring the 16 women who have accused Trump of sexual assault and helping him become president.

The White House position on the president’s accusers is that they are all liars. Trump denied all of the allegations again last month, calling them “fake news” and “made-up stuff.”

So why do Republicans believe Moore’s accusers but not Trump’s? HuffPost spent Tuesday asking GOP senators why the situations are different. Few could offer a convincing argument, instead opting to shrug their shoulders, pivot or abruptly walk away.

Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kansas) said Moore should “step aside” because the women accusing him of misconduct “appear to have the preponderance of the evidence.”

Asked if he believes Trump’s accusers, Roberts replied, “I don’t know them.” He started to leave but turned back and said, referring to Moore’s accusers, “I don’t know the others, either.”

Perhaps realizing his answers made no sense, Roberts turned back again and said with a smile, “Or [Bill] Clinton.”

Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) said Moore’s accusers “certainly seem credible.” He had a harder time responding to the allegations against Trump.

“You’re obviously asking what everybody’s asking. You know, what about all these other folks,” said Cassidy, before taking a lengthy pause. “You know, I don’t know. Without going into [Bill] Clinton, or Trump, or anyone else, I’ll just stay with where I am with Roy Moore.”

Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) argued that the “sheer volume and the level of detail that’s been provided” by Moore’s accusers “draws enough conclusion” for him to say the Alabama Republican ought to withdraw from the race. As for whether Trump’s accusers should be believed, Burr said he was “only addressing Roy Moore.”

It’s no secret that Republicans don’t want Moore in their ranks, and it’s not just because of the latest allegations against him. He thinks homosexuality should be illegal and compared it to bestiality. He fueled conspiracies about former President Barack Obama being born in Kenya. As chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, Moore was expelled from office &#8213; twice &#8213; for defying the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on marriage equality and for refusing to remove a Ten Commandments statue from the courthouse.

Perhaps most unnerving to Republicans, though, is that Moore has Steve Bannon’s support. Bannon, a former top aide to Trump and executive chairman of the conservative website Breitbart, is on a mission to dismantle the political establishment in Washington and sees Moore’s candidacy as a way to do it. He’s vowed to use his website’s platform to try to unseat Republican incumbents in 2018 and wants McConnell out as majority leader.

That’s arguably the biggest factor in Republicans siding with Moore’s accusers. GOP leaders are so desperate to keep Moore out, they’re exploring the idea of a last-minute write-in campaign for another Republican candidate, including Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who previously held the seat. Moore’s name, however, will still appear on the ballot as required by Alabama law &#8213; prompting some Republicans to call for a vote to expel him if he wins the Dec. 12 special election.

“We’ve looked at all the options,” McConnell said Tuesday.

For now, Republicans insist that Moore’s accusers are enough proof that he doesn’t belong in the Senate &#8213; even if they can’t explain why they don’t see Trump’s accusers as just as credible.

Sen. Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) said he believes the women accusing Moore of sexual misconduct but threw his hands in the air when asked about Trump’s accusers.

“I don’t think in this particular case that there was a lot of disagreement among those individuals, so ...” he said, trailing off.

Sen. Steve Daines (R-Mont.), one of four senators who endorsed Moore’s campaign, walked away without saying anything when asked if Trump’s accusers deserve the same benefit of the doubt as the women who accused Moore of sexual assault.

“I’m working on taxes right now and concentrating on that and heading to a meeting where I have to speak and that’s what I’m concentrating on,” Sen. Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) told HuffPost, walking quickly down a Senate hallway.

Asked if he has any thoughts at all on the Moore scandal, he replied, “My thoughts are on taxes. If you want to talk about taxes.”

“OK. Do you want to tax Roy Moore?” asked HuffPost.

Enzi said nothing and walked away.

From Fox news!

http://insider.foxnews.com/2017/11/15/ne...jones-12-points

A new poll from by the National Republican Senatorial Committee shows Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore trailing by 12 points.

In the poll, reported by Politico, Democrat Doug Jones leads the former state supreme court judge with 51 percent support compared to 39 percent for Moore.

The survey was conducted Sunday and Monday following allegations of sexual misconduct against Moore, including that he pursued a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old girl when he was in his early 30s.

The trouble is how many if any of the complaints against him are valid and how many are after 5 minutes of fame! I tend to think most are crap after waiting over ten years to complain!

Baloney. There is never any fame involved for a woman. Just the opposite. Women are hesitant to complain because they think it makes them looks bad. It takes a lot of nerve to say what happened to them. Ask any woman you know. Any woman. I dare you.

No. You are totally wrong. But you are too ignorant to understand.
