Gee I hope there's a new thread. I come across as vulgar

Israel has also asked the Trump administration several times to do something to stop the situation from deteriorating. Last August, a high-ranking delegation visited Washington, including Yossi Cohen, the director of the Mossad, and Herzl Halevi, the head of Israeli military intelligence. They presented H. R. McMaster, Mr. Trump’s national security adviser, with, according to my sources, “sensitive intelligence material, credible and of great concern” about Iranian and Hezbollah plans to attack Israel on the border with Syria. Hezbollah, they said, was building a significant military presence in Syria and Iran was planning to set up a naval base on the Mediterranean at the port of Tartus.

A participant in those talks told me that Israel “demanded” that any peace agreement in Syria require the removal of Hezbollah and Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps troops from the country.

The Americans, however, didn’t agree to deliver. “We do not altogether understand what this administration wants to achieve,” I was told by one of the participants in the talks, “and truth be told we are not at all sure that our interlocutors on the American side know what they want or what the president had told them to achieve. The general feeling is one of confusion and chaos.”

I think the absolute weirdness (not to mention the glaring awfulness) of the Obama portraits is another effort to distract from the gatherings FISAgate scandal. Surely the Obamas didn't just agree go have these obvious nutcases paint their official portraits without some veto power over the results. Right?
it's just bizarre.

The Donald subreddit is having a lot of fun creating memes with the Obama portraits.

The male sperm on Obama's left temple is pretty obvious when you zoom in.

Boatbuilder, after the foam pillars... at what point did either Obama show taste above the level of "early schlock"?

It's not like either of them has reasonably good taste. Mooch wears boob belts and upholstery and Cock Curious is usually slightly more casual than is appropriate for the office. Laurence Tribe has surely ordered copies, maybe one for every room.

And the artist is well-known for doing this in other portraits, as cataloged by Village Voice and others, so the left can hardly claim conspiracy, although of course they are. See below:

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Hmmmm.

The feed went back to the beginning with the video and the introductory speeches.

This was just after Michelle started talking about growing up on the South Side of Chicago.

If I had to guess, the talk started devolving into racism, and they realized this wouldn't go over well with Hoosiers.

The reason I saw this is I saw her talk at the portrait ceremony yesterday and that was what she talked about.

Yes, we have celebrities among us--congrats MM (and as always RG and Clarice).

The portraits are just ghastly, and the photoshopped flowers/leaves show that the artist let Chinese sweatshops do all the hard work. Neither one of these two have ever shown any taste. Obama had to know that this artist almost always includes spermatozoa as a motif--he just didn't know there would be one hanging from his forehead.

JimNorCal

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/02/13/gop-rep-unveils-crumbs-act-to-make-bonuses-tax-free-in-swipe-at-pelosi.html

"A Republican lawmaker is set to unveil legislation that would make most bonuses given out as a result of President Trump's tax reform plan tax-free -- and took a jab at House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi with the bill's name.

Rep. Todd Rokita, R-Ind., has dubbed his bill the "Creating Relief and Useful Middle-Class Benefits and Savings" -- or "CRUMBS" Act. Pelosi, D-Calif., famously referred to the bonuses as "crumbs" in criticizing the tax plan last month.

"Americans are receiving thousands of dollars in bonuses and more money in their paychecks thanks to President Trump's tax reform, but out-of-touch Democratic leaders believe they only amount to crumbs," Rokita said in a statement. "The CRUMBS Act will let Americans keep more of the money they receive as a result of President Trump's tax reform, and allow them, not the government, to choose how best to spend their bonuses

Rokita's bill would make bonuses received by workers in 2018 tax-free up to $2,500. Since tax reform was signed into law this past December, multiple companies have given out bonuses and pay raises in anticipation of increased tax savings."

I wonder if The Office of The President Reject will issue a statement/demand like the one on his skeet shot?

"This official White House photograph is being made available only for publication by news organizations and/or for personal use printing by the subject(s) of the photograph. The photograph may not be manipulated in any way.”

Read the first sentence of this article.

Since GEN Kelly is helping Trump advance his agenda, wouldn't a White House enemy of GEN Kelly also be an White House enemy of Trump?

Knowing that Axios is a leftwing media organization, why would anyone in the WH be leaking them to them in the first place? This is either more Fake News or there are still some GOP Establishment "Never Trumpers" still in the White House.

those portraits are trash. garish, ugly, a perfect representation of the subject matter. a thousand years from now the only evidence of their existence will be in the recovered records of people bitching about them.

"What did I say wrong by implying, without having looked up the particulars, that a territorial dispute between three nations..."

CH:

I took issue with perceived snark re angels and the pin. "We" hear that alot from non-native people. So I reacted without asking the "what do you mean by that question. I pulled the trigger.

Having said that, here's this:

The territorial waters according to American Abenaki sovereignty claims are clearly defined and far from vast and expansive or threatening to industrial users of the waterways.

Hydro-Quebec power has deals with American partners which are dispute settlements re INTERNATIONAL boundaries, those are arrangements designed to cut native sovereignty claims to land and title out of any discussions.

And going back to the original discussion on the last thread re Native population numbers, our disenfranchisement are based largely on "the research" that shows Abenaki are extinct and that "there weren't many to begin with."

So when legitimate tribal rolls begin to grow (Abenaki scalp bounty laws were still on the books in 1954 Vermont but repealed that year)because Abenaki come back to their ancestral home we hear the "angels" comment as we make our cases.

I am not Abenaki but I fought with them and supported them with legal work during my nine years in that communist state.

Their dispute, like all native sovereignty disputes is about *LEGITIMACY*. And when energy is involved, numbers matter because of "the greater good."

So the angels and pin comment.... I took as snark. My apologies if I misunderstood. But it is best to avoid sarcasm if one is devoid or temporarily not in possession of facts.

I'm trying to clean up my act on here since I am feeling better and not brain compromised anymore either with diabetic blood in the brain or opiate remedies for spinal surgical aftermath.

So I will hold myself to the same standard. I won't ask anyone to do what I cannot do myself.

Felt necessary to go into this much detail. I'm confident that you understand where I am coming from CH. You are one of my favorites on here and don't want to kick up shite.

With respect-

>>>"Do you think they care about you? You're just a bargaining chip to these people."

And Trump isn't using the Dreamers as a bargaining chip to gets what he wants out of immigration? I don't think that's wrong he's doing that -- it's the only way he gets the immigration law he's looking for. I just find Trump's audacity more breathtaking than usual.

"They could have changed the law on their own, years ago. Why do you think they didn't?"

Hm. I guess they could have done it in the first two years of Obama, but they were concentrating on stimulus and TARP and Obamacare. After that, there weren't 60 votes for it, and the GOP was willing to filibuster.

Posted by: Appalled | February 13, 2018 at 04:04 PM<<<

Damn it Appalled. More breathtaking audacity? More breathtaking than breaking the law? Zero created an unconstitutional quasi-legal status for some indeterminate number of people, promised them amnesty, and while leading from behind, dumped the whole thing on the next administration. If the Red Witch got in, we'd be crying in our beers about an expansive amnesty for millions instead if the millions that Trump now wants to amnesty. If he wanted to do anything other than give them script-era second-class citizenship he had "the gang of eight" and a solid 75 votes for whatever amnesty he would have proposed. Reagan did one and Clinton did about half a dozen. TARP was already passed-it was how he took over GM among other concerns. And the way the Dems bullied through Obamacare, an issue-like amnesty-that has bipartisan support in DC would have been easy otherwise.

Actually this is an example of his failed leadership-if he weren't such a bully on his stimulus, TARP,and Obamacare and started with amnesty, a bipartisan stimulus, and a less intrusive program with the remaining TARP (or used the remaining TARP for a massive corporate tax cut) he could have had a bipartisan Obamacare and we would be talking about Obama's 3rd term (quite literally, because I think if things had broken another way, the 22nd amendment would have been disposed of).
