Trump ........ is POTUS ..... now what?

Postby Robin Hood » Sun Jan 29, 2017 10:21 pm

Is it any wonder people are confused and don't know who to believe?

Two reports of the same event ……the telephone conversation between Trump and Putin. One is positive although it is by the ‘enemy’ whilst the second is negative by the ‘good guys’.

However it does seem that the 45 minute phone conversation covered a lot of ground and both leaders have agreed to a future face-to-face meeting. :)

How is it possible to work out which report is a more pragmatic and realistic report of the actual event? :?:

This seems to provide just facts and expresses no opinion on specifics:

Putin and Trump discuss ISIS, Syria and Ukraine in first phone conversation

This seems to skip any reference to the content of the exchange but expresses a lot of negative opinion not related to it:
Donald Trump Holds Call With Russian President Vladimir Putin

If you want an example of just how shallow Paphitis is .... look no further! :lol: :lol:

Here we have a member who has started a thread titled ‘Silencing Pests and Trolls’ aimed primarily at the originator of this new thread but he fails to heed his own advice. He is the only one who has replied so far, but he claims he has blocked this member as an ‘enemy’ so that he is not annoyed by his posts that systematically destroy every bit of fake news that he posts.

To reply he must have read the post? :roll: Seems a reasonable assumption ...... but he has advised others NOT to read his enemies posts. A classic example of his hypocrisy and of that of a fake news propagator!

The thread of course I knew he could not resist. So I was 100% correct in my prediction of what his reaction would be when he saw it. I thought the title would just give him high blood pressure but never dreamed he would be stupid enough to actually reply to it, being the first one to do so at that and contrary to the advice and warnings he gave to other members. I was wrong there! How much dumber can he get?

I have not read his reply as I have taken his advice and excluded his rabid posts. His posts have little credibility. But, I will exercise the right of reply in this instance ..... but blind.

Virtually everything Paphitis posts is fake news or an expression of his own irrational imagination. A sure indication of fake news is where the creator and promoter of it cannot tolerate being asked to substantiate the claims they have made. Their response is to attack those that question!

Paphitis very rarely provides any supporting links for his views and proclamations. However, when he does, he only reads the headline of the ‘link’ he provides and assumes the headline to reflect the content. He recently posted three credible links (his words and in this instance I agree) but unfortunately for him the articles they linked to illustrated exactly the opposite of the dialogue he spouted in ignorance. A frequent result of his failure to read what he posts or links to. Therefore he is a headline only reader and any post contrary to HIS view is therefore false.

His response .... what it always is ..... he ignores it as he had no countering response or he tries to bullsh*t his way out of it by changing the subject and making even wilder claims! This scenario is repeated over and over again. I would make a guess that any member who has read his extensive views and prophesy’s on events in Syria, will be aware that these views are very far removed from being credible and are promoted by an individual with a serious mental block against reality.

Then, as we have seen in the last few months in the US, he starts a fake news campaign to ridicule and insult the poster that has had the audacity to call him out and asked him for some credible evidence. In his arrogance he considers he needs no justification because he is always right. Of course this is something he has continually failed to demonstrate because, when he is wrong he either ignores it or claims he was right, against all the contrary evidence that demonstrates otherwise.

I will no longer read his intellectually challenged and offensive posts and obviously, this will be the only time I will waste my time replying to the ramblings of a man with serious hang-ups and views that defy all reason and common sense.

Paphitis ..... consider me your ‘enemy’ and block me, you have no interest in my views and I certainly have no interest in yours. I have absolutely no further interest in your rabid views on any subject, so please resist the temptation to reply to any of my posts.

One of the claims that were ridiculed by those that were opposed to the UK Brexit, was that ‘.... Little Englanders’ wanted control over their borders. May and Trump were obviously on common ground there! :roll:

From events developing after Trumps latest Presidential Order on the vetting of immigrants to the US, translated into preventing access to the US by specific Muslim countries, seems to be ‘America Firsters’ banging the same drum.

I actually agree with Trumps conception but get the distinct impression that all is not what it appears to be. His intent has been hijacked and when you listen to ordinary Americans the idea of more 'control' over their borders is what most of them want, not a senseless blanket ban on immigration from selective countries. :x

The threat to the US is more from within than without! Few if any foreign Muslims have carried out terrorist attacks and yet something like 700-800 people a month die in non-terrorist related gun incidents. More people have died in recent times in the US from being shot by children under five than those killed in terrorist attacks apparently. :roll:

The idea on some control over who is and who is not welcome in your country can only be a sensible precaution. This seems a bit OTT and looks as if the Deep State is trying to cause disruption by ensuring a rapid execution of this order, without any foresight and to the extreme limits of absurdity? It is almost as if they are trying to make Trump look a fool.

Trump has to make getting control over his team a priority, or has he bitten off more than he can chew? Maybe Putin could give him some advise? :wink:
