Trump, Saudi Arabia and Israel…….oy

There’s so much wrong with THIS ARTICLE I don’t know where to start.

Roger Stone, Trump’s friend and advisor wants to “puke” at the award the Saudis gave Trump.   Fine.  That’s his choice.  But…

“Stone, like many other conservative Trump backers, believes the president may be softening his hardline stand against Islamic terrorism.  REALLY? So he and others think Trump doesn’t stand hard against Islamic terrorism?  WHAT?  Did they hear his speech in Saudi Arabia?

“Stone also said that Trump should have demanded that the Saudis pay for the 9/11 attack on the United States. Fifteen of the 19 hijackers of 9/11 were Saudi nationals. No evidence has ever been presented that the Saudi government was behind the attacks.    So, Trump’s supposed to say  “Look, King, we have no evidence, but you have to PAY”??

Then the author talks about how Trump ‘bowed’ to the King of Saudi Arabia, even though he’d criticized Obama for bowing.  The author apparently didn’t see the event or he’d know Trump bowed because he’s about a foot taller than the King who was trying to put something around his neck, not bowing to the Muslim King like Obama did.

The article also says “Stone is the latest staunch Trump supporter who has recently had harsh words for the president. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter last week said Trump has a “grotesque personality”….

Yup…..the media’s swimming with good news about Trump, isn’t it?  I am EXTREMELY disappointed with him, too, but I’d never say anything close to these things in public if anybody listened to me, and the media WILL listen to anybody who knows Trump  and has an unkind word to say.

THIS REALLY BUGGED ME!  Imagine how tired Trump is and he says  in Israel “We just got back from the Middle East…from Saudi Arabia…and..,” so the press is all over his not understanding what subcontinent he’s on…..“It would be nice if the president of the United States was required to pass a basic geography test. But it’s clear that, if such a test existed, Donald Trump would not be president”  Nice, huh?   I’ve had travel schedules where I didn’t know if I was coming or going and Mr. Z would go directly into meetings upon our landing after 12 hour flights.  Okay, he probably never gaffed but I SURE COULD HAVE!

ALSO….I keep hearing “What Trump’s doing now is just a CONTINUATION of what Obama and even Bush started….”  Yes, we saw how well Obama did in Egypt, then about the Israeli/Palestinian situation, right?   We saw how Obama couldn’t even say the words Islamic Terrorism, etc…..

I think it’s wise just to STOP LISTENING TO THE MEDIA…EITHER SIDE, Left or Right……..now what?

    This guy can’t even get a break from his wife…watch closely; at first, I hoped the headline was just more ridiculous conjecture…but……….

  2. geeez2014 says:

    Juan Williams just said there’s little support for a 2-state solution in Israel….No. Every Israeli I know says their Israeli friends want ANYTHING that MIGHT bring peace. he’s just plain WRONG. My Israeli friends also think their friends are dead WRONG because THEY KNOW, as WE know, that peace won’t come just for that. I hope I’m wrong.

  3. geeez2014 says:

    Flynn is going to plead the Fifth and not testify? I’d have thought he must testify.
    Also, do you think Comey should testify in PUBLIC? That, to me, means it’ll be pablum, nothing the public can’t know…ergo, worthless.

  4. geeez2014 says:

    I usually find the FOX ladies on OUTNUMBERED pretty smart, but they’re talking about Trump coming out after the meeting he’s having now with Netanyahu as if Trump’s going to announce PEACE today. THAT is FUNNY. Right..he’s coming out and saying “We have peace between Muslims and Jews….thanks, everybody…..tweets to follow!” (Sarc)

  5. Kid says:

    I see Trump’s visit as:
    – good for America jobs and economy
    – had the ME setup that financial thing to put the hurt on terrorist money
    – Had talks with some oif the attendees heads of state and got a commitment to fight terror
    – Has a lot of muslms involved n fighting terror rather than sitting on the sidelines
    – Has made a very clear construct in that states will now visibly participate or call themselves out as not caring abot or supporting terror.
    – Best foot forward
    – Ball in their court
    A+ for the visit.

    Stopped listening to news on any channel other than OAN months ago ‘cause all it did was aggravate my hypertension and make me wonder why I permit the stuff in my house via coax or telephone wire or satellite dish or whatever.

    Unsurprisingly, your post parallels my daily rant, which deals with celebs becoming shills for weight-loss programs, precious-metals hoarding, and so on. It picks specifically on Marie Osmond (whom I consider quite beautiful but disappointing) and William Devane, who at 80 is much better looking than I am, but only because of his wealth and the magicians in his makeup trailer.

    The title of the e-mail rant is “leeches, lice, liars, and mice; parasites all, ethics awol.”

    Far too many “journalists” today have prostituted themselves exactly as Osmond and Devane have done, so like celebs cashing in on name recognition and cosmetic wizardry, I have no use for 95% of what passes as “news” these days.

    Ben wants a one state solution.

  8. geeez2014 says:

    Kid, I agree with your surmisal of this trip so far…and I understand a media which hates him and will flip out and do ALL THEY CAN to screw any peace solution he comes up with…they already are setting the stage for their complaints….”Obama started this..” AS IF!!

    A one-state solution is dreadful…I hope it never happens. Bye bye Israel.

    Bocopro….I actually know well the gal who does the sets for Devane’s gold selling ads! She said he was very standoffish at first but quite nice as he’s come to know and trust her! He does look good for his age, I’m surprised he’s 80, if you know that for sure!
    Osmond…well, she’s helped SO MANY People with Nutrisystem, I can’t be too angry.

    What bugs me is that starving actors and actresses used to get ads and now it’s only those who don’t need the money doing TV work, voice-over work, etc. That bugs me.

  9. Kid says:

    Are they saying what barry did exactly that warrants their comment? barry went over, bowed, and they gave him a cookie and sent him on his way.

  10. Kid says:

    Honestly, All or most in atendence recognize Iran as the big problem over there. barry gave them 150 billion + 400 million $. Maybe he should get another peace prize.

  11. bocopro says:

    I heard my granddaughter say he’s 80 and she doesn’t like him ’cause he looks too much like John McCain, whom she considers a treacherous RINO.

    According to his bio, Devane was born in early Sep ’37. So he’ll turn 80 in about 100 days.

    As for Marie, she’s one of those ladies who got better lookin as she got older, but check her out without makeup and you can see that she benefits from complimentary makeup, complementary colors, and comfortable lighting in those infomercials. NO WAY those bovine lips are natural.

    I would, of course, volunteer to check her for ticks if the opportunity arose. She’s pretty close to my image of a dream girl . . . for a haoli chick.

    Still don’t like snake-oil salesmen and 3-card-monte hustlers, tho, no matter how good they look.

  12. geeez2014 says:

    Kid, right!!!!

    Bocopro….as for Marie….not only take off the makeup, but if she’d not had ‘work,’ ..YIKES! She dresses FAR FAR too young to still look viable, frankly. Lips aren’t natural….no LINES isn’t natural!
    She’s pretty but SO “plastic’…….\

    I just heard Leland Vitters ask a Palestinian bigwig “What do you have to offer Israel…they’re offering a lot” All this jerk did was go into his harangue about how the Israelis haven’t wanted to talk with the P’s and this Israeli gov’t is too conservative, etc.
    And Vitters never asked “But, what do YOU have to offer?” (like stopping cartoons for the kids telling them how to kill Jews, maybe?)

  13. geeez2014 says:

    So if Flynn pleads the Fifth, what then? “I refuse to testify on the grounds it may incriminate me?” Remember that IRS woman Lois Lerner? She did that and she’s scott FREE!!
    What the HECK?

  14. geeez2014 says:

    Social Media is FRANTICALLY THRILLED with the info I put above, that Melania may have swatted away Trump’s hand when they were walking from the plane in Israel. It looked like that to me, too, but I think now it COULD BE that he’d turned around to say “You okay?” and she indicated “Sure, go ahead…”

    See what you guys think…. My husband might have looked back just to make sure I’m fine in a situation like that….we weren’t huge hand holders , not all the time, and not in business situations, usually………so…anybody want to weigh in?

  15. So if Flynn pleads the Fifth, what then?

    Flynn is guilty of something, by his own publicly stated standards, much less anything else the Special Counsel or House/Senate Committees will ascertain.

  16. I didn’t see the event, but my wife and I are hand-holders, and do so traveling as well. We’re not the First Family though…..

  17. geeez2014 says:

    CI, the link to the “Melania swatting” is in my first comment above. No, you’re not the First Family!

    So, Flynn’s guilty….what happens now? As did Lois Lerner, he says “I’m not talking” and walks away?

  18. geeez2014 says:

    Hand holding is one of the things I miss the most since Mr. Z died…….we did, but not to show how much we loved each other…and I know that’s not why you do, either, CI.
    We did at moments you’d least expect it…and traveling, sometimes, just to make sure I kept up with my 6’2″, fast-walking husband! I’m 5’9″ and can haul, but in crowded airports, we stayed connected 🙂

  19. Imp says:

    Devane …. September 5…. 1939…, closing in on 78.

  20. Imp says:

    Olive Marie Osmond

    October 13,1959…. 57 years

  21. Imp says:

    The law doesn’t require General Flynn to prosecute or indict himself. Nor provide information that may be used against him. Lois and Clinton demrats excel in that area of the law from the IP zipper head who set up her illegal operations to the janitor in the building. And I heard she snd bill have been personally walking their hometown streets offering everything from used flat ware, china… some used keyboards and a million in cash for most of them…. to say they never see them or how wonderful they really are, while she’s coming out of the woods with a smoking gun in her hand.

  22. So, Flynn’s guilty….what happens now?

    Not sure; I suck at prognosticating after a GOP majority House failed to go after Lerner.

  23. bocopro says:

    Hmm . . . that’s odd — Wikipedia says Devane was born n ’37, but IMDB says ’39.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Devane

    Not that I give much of a damn, but ya never know these days — can’t trust ANY sources, I guess.

  24. bocopro says:

    “Marie [. . .] She dresses FAR FAR too young”

    Not sure I know what that means. I’m 77 and all I ever wear is Wranglers and Ts, and the Ts all have social commentary and artwork on ’em (’cause my wife ‘n’ kids ‘n’ grandkids buy ’em for me for b-days and Christmas gifts).

    My wife, who’s 79, prefers spandex leggings for virtually ALL occasions. Fortunately she’s got the pins for it. In fact, she looks downright dowdy in most dresses. Still keeps her hair in bangs and ponytail, too. No objections from me on that.

    I think I put on a tie once last year, for jury duty, and once this year, for a funeral (pallbearer). Never have quite bought into the idea of wrappin a cord around my neck and jerkin a knot in it. Had to do it for many years in the Navy, but never quite saw the logic in it.

  25. geeez2014 says:

    bocopro, gotta say Spandex leggings aren’t something I’d recommend, but good for her!
    Everybody’s different….there should be no ‘hard and fast’ rule, although my British business partner used to see older women in too short skirts, for example, and call them “Mutton dressed as lamb.” I think it’s a sense some have…
    Also, sometimes it’s a matter of genes, ethnicity, etc. SO many black women I am close with look younger than our white friends…just great skin, tighter, firmer, etc.

    I’m not sure I was right about Marie and young clothing…she dresses in good taste…I see her a lot on QVC selling NutriSystem…..I guess the hair and makeup just seems ‘too much,’ but….what do I really care? She pulls the hair close around her face most of the time….if I’d spent that much on plastic surgery, I’d be wearing MY hair in a pony tail!

    Imp; what’s this about the Clintons and their hometown??!

    CI, I don’t know why the GOP didn’t go harder after Lerner…I guess after the FBI said they could find no criminality, how much could they do? And the FBI did say that….Some say Obama should have asked her to resign.

  26. Imp says:

    Bocopro…..lets split the difference then? 1938 it is .
    But I’d take IMDB cause their stuff comes from actors unions and guilds. And some of the studios supply bios too.
    That’s just me though. Ok swabbie : anchor clanker?

  27. Kid says:

    Lerner is scheduled to show up in a non-public testimony session in Congress at some point in the near future.

    Women should wear what they feel comfortable with without embarassing themselves, while still projecting the feminine alure. (Hey I’m a guy)

    At this point, I’m also interested in women who show some lines of maturity and experinece on their face. The picture bocopro posted of the white haired lady comes close for me too (The large pic, not the smaller thumbnail). I can’t understand why someone over say 40 would be interested in a 22 yr old. Or someone over 60 interested in anything under 45 or so, though she doesn’t have to be younger than me either.

  28. Imp says:

    Z.. satire …pure satire. Kids rubbing off on me.
    And the GOP? If they were to come out as strong as chuckles, waters , schiff or that bowling ball Cummings…. I’d have another heart attack. I think I gave up when they passed over Trey Gowdy for AG…. he should now be heading the FBI and screw them all. The demrats are low life savages and sewer scum.. but they’re effective …. we’re just clowns to them. And they have zero fear of the GOP.

  29. Kid says:

    What IMP said, except Gowdy took himself out.

  30. Kid says:

    Did you see where Assange has now proposed to chelsea manning?

  31. geeez2014 says:

    The silver-haired woman bocopro linked to was gorgeous….and looked wise and fun! Perfect.
    I personally can’t stand seeing older women with rolls of midriff falling out between shorts and a short-cropped top, etc….I feel sorry for them, actually. At home, WEAR IT, but give others’ eyes a break!

    And ya, I THOUGHT something new was coming out about Lerner….Not sure what’ll get done….Lerner is a past president of the Council on Governmental Ethics Laws…cracks me up!

  32. Kid says:

    Lerner and ethics laws? Makes perfect sense when you remember that Libya was put in charge of human rights.

  33. bocopro says:

    “Bocopro…..lets split the difference then? 1938 it is .
    Ok swabbie : anchor clanker?”

    To quote Hawkeye Pierce: “The instrument has not yet been devised which could measure my indifference to [anything said or done by Hollywooders].”

    Wikipedia can be kinda flaky at times, but I’ve grown comfortable with their format, and I often go to it first when all I want is a general idea, not a bona fide reference.

    And as for the GOP — they’re working day and night to put TheOnion out of business through intense competition.

  34. Imp says:

    Bocopro….. well wiki has herds of volunteers that edit their info too . It’s hard to overlook their biases. With IMDB…. they cover career movies, inside info on their careers and generally unknown trivia.

  35. geeez2014 says:

    EVERYTHING IS LEFTWING now…Even Last Man Standing got cancelled…the ONE show with the occasional conservative comment. The ONE.
    Movie makers, TV makers, AD makers, Wiki writers, 98% of journalists (if you believe the polls which show that), teachers, many pastors MANY rabbis, ….you name it. Find a Conservative majority…. Good luck.
    And, while Trump won, 3 million didn’t vote for him…and as thrilled as I am that Clinton didn’t win, they ARE winning.

    Particularly if Trump’s new budget passes (which it will not)….cutting Medicaid and , as the Left’s putting it today “Cutting from poor and ill children, etc.” no chance.

    VERY few Americans put the country first; they think and vote their pocketbooks.
    Funny, I am finally on Medicare and I feel a little guilty each time it pays anything…imagine? Seriously

  36. bocopro says:

    No guilt here. I paid into that system for years and years. Never had occasion to see any docs except for routine physicals while on active naval service, and the occasional scratch or scrape. Paid but never took any benefits ’til I was around 60. Then I had a fairly serious MI, most of which was paid for by TriCare and MediCare. Think I spent around $3K out of pocket, tops. Figure I earned it.

    Did get a double inguinal at the Navy Hospital a few years back, no charge. MediCare would’ve paid most of that, ’cause I was over 65 at the time, but the Navy did it all with no cost to me — same payer, I reckon: Uncle Sugar.

    Chief surgeon was a tiny little female O-6, and all the backups, nurses, and technicians on the team (7 in all) were female, except for the anaesthesiologist — a big, lanky Navy Commander who thanked me profusely for not being fat and for being in reasonable good physical condition and a non-smoker — said it made his job MUCH easier.

  37. Imp says:

    Bocopro….. how amazed would you have been if you had an O7, one star or an admiral working on ya?

  38. geeez2014 says:

    I don’t like having my neighbors pay for me, basically. Yes, we paid into it….If I were rich, I’d NEVER take social sec or medicare and, if I did, I’d put it aside for charity.

  39. Imp says:

    “not bowing to the Muslim King like Obama did..”
    And I can’t forget the look of astonshient on the kings face too. I’m sure he heard rumors that Obuttboy might swing both ways and he might have thought O was going to shake his junk or take a peek under his majesty’s flowing robes? And that KING DIDN’T HANG any medals on his skinny neck either…although it might have crossed his mind what a nifty scimitar would do to it. And wager where he might hang it. And that king never bothered to meet O either…he made him go to His Majesty. All President TRUMP did was to bend his knees so that the frail old man could hang that 20 pounds of gold worth 100K at least on him.

  40. Kid says:

    IMP, the 3 year old’s are going gangbusters over “Trump bowed to the King”. Of course if Trump was going to bow he’d have done it when the King came out to the beginning of the red carpet to Greet President Trump.

    Honestly the left have devolved into such worthless, slimey, unintelligent, adolescent POS’s that it isn’t even worth responding to them anymore.

    When I feel like it though, I respond “Trump for 8, Pence for 8, Conservative Supreme Court for the rest of our lives.”

    That probably makes them cry.

  41. geeez2014 says:

    THERE IS NO WAY TRUMP BOWED….YOU CAN SEE IT SO CLEARLY…HE HAD TO BOW DOWN/BEND TO HELP THE KING PUT A MEDAL AROUND HIS HEAD WHICH IS ABOUT A FOOT TALLER THAN THE KING! IT’S SO CLEAR!

    iMP…The King rarely meets anybody on the tarmak…he sure didn’t for Obama, you’re right.

    Oh, ya…anything good from this trip’ll be “Obama started it..” anything Trump doesn’t get , it’ll be all Trump’s fault, right?

    jerks

  42. Mal says:

    As I’ve said before, if even Jesus Christ became our president, he would be criticized if his party began with an R.
