Colin Powell´s rip of
Trump falls on deaf ears

Washington Times, by Cheryl K. Chumley

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 10/8/2018 5:23:46 PM

Colin Powell, who served in the lead spot at the State Department under George W. Bush, took a nationally televised opportunity on CNN and turned it into hit job on President Donald Trump. Again. For starters, this time, he characterized the White House as immoral; dinged the administration for its crackdown on illegal immigration; and called out Trump for sidestepping the “we the people” of the Constitution in favor of a “me the president” approach. Everybody’s entitled to an opinion. But Powell’s been on an anti-Trump rant for years. He should realize Trump supporters, when confronted with the arguments of

Comments:
After serving your country well in the Military and with honors, you throw in with the crowd that is racist to the core. Look at how "your" young people suffer in Chicago, Baltimore, Washington DC or any major metropolitan city where dRATS hold sway. You´re wasting your gifts on the wrong causes. Black men and family life should be your place to mentor.

Of course it fell on deaf ears. No one watches CNN unless trapped at the airport.

So the reason we should stick with the FAILED and NECROTIC agreements is because they have been around for a long time? This is the dead end thinking that pervaded the state department and shows why nothing ever changed. All it means is that our "allies" have been taking advantage of us for a long time. The whole focus of State seemed to be to preserve a moribund system. That could be said to be true of the whole government.

Change can be risky and painful but it is the only way to make improvements. After all the whining and the predictions of failure, many of Trump´s initiatives are moving forward. Those successes make it more likely that others will follow. None of these changes have been designed to ruin other countries. In fact, more commerce is likely to result in the long run.

Trump realized that the old ways had to dynamited away to move forward. That shook things up a bit. People used to focusing only on keeping smooth relations could never have done this.

Too bad Powell has ended up like this but he´s been drifting Left right along.

Colin Powell has been wrong more than once on very big issues. Remember when he got President G.H.W. Bush to stop the first Gulf War when the USA and the UK were well on their way to whipping Iraq, a victory that would have allievated the need for the Second Gulf War including the invasion of Iraq years later. Then years later when Powell went before the U.N. and reported that Iraq possessed very dangerous weapons of mass destruction thus paving the way for President G. W. Bush to prosecute the Invasion of Iraq. Clearly Powell was another Democrat in disguise who fooled the Bush dynasty.

Powell lost his cred with Republicans in 2008 when he abandoned the GOP candidate in favor of a Democrat with the proper skin color. He can go on CNN and blow hot air all he wants now, but with no more cred, he won´t change anybody´s mind.

Powell was the 4th Infantry Division Deputy Commander. His boss General Hudachek rated Powell as only an average Army officer. Normally that would be a career ender. Powell had friends in Washington and made sure the affirmative action plan would be put into effect. During Dessert Storm Powell had one big responsibility...to get the 4th ID access into northern Iraq. He failed at at that also. The Peter Principle made clear.

Despite his denials, President Trump is very much the center of the 2018 election, political pros say — and the leader of the Republican Party will earn at least some of the blame should the GOP fail to hold its majorities in Congress. Mr. Trump stirred the pot this week when he told the Associated Press he’s not on the ballot and, while he’s been able to boost some candidates in Republican primaries, he won’t bear responsibility if they lose control of the House. “No, I think I’m helping people,” he said. He later complained about the headline the Associated Press slapped its piece, saying it was taken out of context.

What’s the worst way to possibly die? It’s hard to imagine anything more sickening and barbaric than what is alleged to have happened to Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a columnist for the Washington Post. He was apparently lured to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, where he was confronted by a 15-man hit squad that had flown in from Riyadh to murder him. But not, it is claimed, quickly. He was dragged from the consul-general’s office to the table of a study next door. There, for seven long, agonising minutes, Khashoggi was reportedly tortured and hacked to pieces with a bone-saw while he

On Monday a federal judge dismissed Stormy Daniels’ defamation suit against President Trump. Stormy filed a defamation suit against President Trump after he mocked her over a sketch of the man who allegedly threatened her–the man in the sketch looked eerily like her ex-husband. The U.S. District Judge dismissed the case on grounds Trump’s tweet was “rhetorical hyperbole,” not defamatory as Stormy Daniels alleged. The federal judge also ordered Stormy to pay Trump’s legal fees! On Tuesday morning President Trump tweeted out a warning to “horseface” Stormy Daniels and her “third rate lawyer” Michael Avenatti.

When all else fails, change the system.

Reminded that expanding the Senate would require a Constitutional Amendment, they´ve now, apparently, resorted to "reforming" the other half of the bicameral legislature, the House of Representatives.

The last thing Democrats wanted to do in October 2018 was talk about the Clintons. Bill and Hillary Clinton aren’t just the past of the Democratic Party. The once-enormously-popular two-term president and the party’s 2016 standard-bearer are the living embodiments of two of the Democrats’ biggest problems: hypocrisy about the #MeToo movement, which they believe they can exploit politically, and contempt for the working-class voters who cost the party the last presidential election. Any mention of the Clintons, whether with respect to Bill Clinton’s predatory personal behavior or Hillary’s insatiable need to relitigate her 2016 defeat and to justify

The media and other Democrats are extremely concerned about missing Jamal Khashoggi, as they should be, and they believe the Saudis murdered him.

Elizabeth Warren is taking a page from Trump´s playbook, hitting back in personal terms and calling him "creepy" on Twitter. When it comes to challenging the man who redefined the rules of American political combat, the Massachusetts Democrat, who´s weighing a 2020 presidential run, is often doing it Trump´s way. And like Trump, she´s getting blowback: Jokes. Objections. And grumblings from her own political party about timing, with midterm elections three weeks away. A look at how it´s playing out:_

The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians issued a statement largely supporting Sen. Elizabeth Warren´s recent DNA test to confirm her Native American ancestry — breaking with another tribe that called the move "inappropriate and wrong." Eastern Band Principal Chief Richard Sneed said in a statement to Business Insider on Tuesday that while they "strongly condemn" people who try to pass off distant Native ancestry as their race, they don´t believe that Warren has appropriated their culture. "Senator Elizabeth Warren does not claim to be a citizen of any tribal nation, and she is not a citizen of the Eastern Band,"

"Today´s decision is a huge win for defrauded borrowers around the country," said Julie Murray, an attorney at Public Citizen Litigation Group. "The rule is finally in effect. No more excuses.
