Quote clip...........

.......... We (the USA..) are not the most powerful nation in the world because of our aircraft carriers, our economy, or our seat at the United Nations Security Council. We are the most powerful nation in the world because we try to be the good guys. We are the most powerful nation in the world because our ideals of universal freedom and equality have been backed up by our belief that we were champions of justice, the protectors of the less fortunate.

But, if we don’t care about our values, if we don’t care about duty and honor, if we don’t help the weak and stand up against oppression and injustice — what will happen to the Kurds, the Iraqis, the Afghans, the Syrians, the Rohingyas, the South Sudanese and the millions of people under the boot of tyranny or left abandoned by their failing states?

If our promises are meaningless, how will our allies ever trust us? If we can’t have faith in our nation’s principles, why would the men and women of this nation join the military? And if they don’t join, who will protect us? If we are not the champions of the good and the right, then who will follow us? And if no one follows us — where will the world end up?

President Trump seems to believe that these qualities are unimportant or show weakness. He is wrong. .......................

These words should have us all reflecting.........Many Global nations must also feel this way...I know that Canada does...

Everybody relax, our imperialism is alive and well... we just moved from one sand hole in northern Syria to a much larger sand hole in SA.

This romantic notion that we are the protectors of the weak and oppressed is just plain bullshit. The US military has almost never confronted anyone unless it was in the interest of the US government.

Obama:

"Oh, yes...we can!

Trump:

"Yeah, I did it...get over it"

oh there will be taxpayer improvement$$$$$$$$$$$$$$...

when bush held the G8 at sea island they asked the residents if they would offer their homes for the event but it turned into the biggest cluster because all of the leaders sent staff to scout out the cottages and they all complained of the inequality and one had this and they didn't blah blah blah hilarious but the really sad part is that it all went to the heads of the Sea Island company owners, they jacked up prices and tore down the great old structures and put in new that had nothing to do with why people bought there and went bankrupt about 5 years later. just about every house there is for sale without a sign and nothing sells. The new Cloister looks like disney and the swim club which was the coolest thing about the place looks more like a new car dealership. the only reason to go is the lodge as it was untouched and it is very cool. A great old resort ruined by ego.

would be so great if no country came and moved it til after the election.

I think that it means that this POTUS can't sneak this much of the US taxpayers $$$ this openly and illegally into his extended family pockets . He will have to find other more devious ways to take the taxpayers $$$...

He also wanted his 'gop clan' muscle players back with him..as some were bailing out on him over this personal money grab..

The Jackhole is back . . . along with his catchphrase.

Swell.
Poor Hbar.
Still clinging to the anti-Clinton propaganda he swallowed hook,line and sinker.

Spent 8 years spewing anti-President Obama right-wing talking points.
Opposes most liberal/progressive agenda such as affordable healthcare, minimum wage increases, workers rights AKA Unions, gun safety regulations, etc.

Thinks name calling and failed attempts at insults makes his gibberish relevent, see above quote.

By far the most entertaining aspect of Hbar is his attempt to distance himself from Trump by "claiming" he went all in on writing in Sen. Bernie Sanders in the 2016 Presidential election.

LOL.

Poor Jhol.

Still babbling incoherent comments that don't make any sense or are just plain wrong.

Thinks repeating his Hillary Clinton catchprase over and over again, years after she's retired and no longer in the news, is clever.

Claims that I "spent 8 years spewing anti-President Obama" rhetoric when I did no such thing and generally supported him and have praised him far more than criticized him.

By far the most entertaining aspect of Jhol is when he suddenly disappears for a few months.

Just kidding. We all love you. Keep doing exactly what you've been doing and you'll be the most beloved poster in the history of BWOT.

LOL.
