If Trump attacks Assad's forces based upon false pretenses again and if he continues ramping up tensions and threats and actions against Putin and Russia (and Iran), I'm done with him.

"Russians may leave Donbass in exchange for lifting of sanctions." That's nonsense because 1) Russia isn't in the Donbass (we'll all know if Russia really rolls in) and 2) Russia knows that sanctions have to do with a great deal more than Donbass and that even if eased, sanctions will come right back under other false pretenses.

Trump appears to be trying to pretend that he doesn't know he can't test and toy with Putin. Vladimir Putin has become a consummate professional. He doesn't play Trump's "negotiating" games. Putin has his own style, which is no game, no toying. Putin has the patience of a saint but has his own red lines that if crossed by others will result not in backpedaling but retaliatory strikes designed to send more than a signal. As Putin sees it, he has no choice.

I hoped a bit that Trump would bring some progressive aspects to his economics. I knew Trump was brain dead on the environment. What I hoped the most was that he'd at least turn out to be significantly better than Hillary Clinton would have on geopolitical issues.

So far, Trump's economics have been designed to win over the other plutocrats while placating/duping the masses via tax cuts (temporary ones). Therefore, and in addition to the Fed's recent backwards signals, I've been looking at a recession brewing for many months now. I typically have long vision on such things, as I saw and openly pronounced that the US is headed for a major recession as bad as or worse than the Great Depression. I said that in 2003. Well, the tiny stimulus package saved us from quite reaching Great Depression depths but not by much.

In 2008-9, I was hearing so much Keynesianism (which wasn't on the public radar in 2003) that I started fearing overheating and inflation via too much stimulus. No such luck! Not even close, as they say.

On the environment, it's been worse than I thought it would be. Apparently "brain dead" needs to be qualified with "intentional hyper-polluter."

On the geopolitical front, things are really headed down the tubes. Trump talked a great game during the campaign when he repeatedly claimed he had been against the Iraq war because it was based upon trumped up charges of WMD. He also appeared to correctly stand his ground when he said the "intelligence community" didn't know who hacked what, as it could have been a "400 pound" guy somewhere (anywhere) who did it, which remains true to this day. Nevertheless, Trump pretends Assad's forces conduct chemical-weapons attacks in Syria. However, we know that the White Helmets and their ilk are the direct creation of British intelligence for the main purpose of spewing false propaganda (fake news) to provide pretexts for primarily US military action against Assad. That's solely because Assad won't do what he's told. If Assad were the US's puppet, he could be ten times worse with nothing to fear from the US. That's because the US is first and foremost about US plutocrats making more money at the negative expense of everyone else. It's really that simple.

So, if Trump attacks Assad's forces based upon false pretenses again and if he continues ramping up tensions and threats and actions against Putin and Russia (and Iran), I'm done with him. If you think that doesn't matter, you don't understand. It's not some egotistical statement. It's much more akin to a prophecy. Those who have ears, let them hear. It's very logical.

He obviously doesn't give a damn about fascist, racist Zionists back shooting unarmed Gazans (who have the international right to return and 80% of whom had their ancestral land stolen right out from under them by those same Zionists). God is not pleased with Donald John Trump.

Holocaust was faked? Jewish bankers run the world? It's not that easy.

"... suggestion that the Holocaust was faked, or that Jewish bankers run the world." How convenient to lump things totally together: no range of statements or questions allowed. It's all or nothing.

Well, the right-wing Jewish narrative concerning everything about the gas chambers at concentration camps is fair game for questions of degree and questions about Jews who lied/exaggerated, etc. Also, Jews themselves brag about the fact that as a percentage of population, there are more Jewish billionaires (including bankers and banksters) than for any other ethnic group.

So, it isn't just "Holocaust" but how much and the fact that many Jews use it as an excuse to murder unarmed Palestinian protesters by shooting them in the back.

As for the bankers, are all Jews defending them? No. Are all banksters Jews? No.

Where are the Jews crying anti-Semitism the most when it comes time to thoroughly retract all support for the right-wing-Zionist regime heading up the ethnocracy called the Jewish State of Israel? Where are they when it comes time for BDS, just like the BDS against Apartheid South Africa (which wasn't Jewish but was "singled out" until they repented)?

What triggered the investigation(s) concerning alleged Trump-Russian-government collusion, and what is Devin Nunes really doing about it?

There's a great deal of needless confusion concerning what prompted the investigation concerning alleged Trump-Russian-government collusion. That's because the term investigation is used ambiguously. There was/is more than one investigation. There's also the issue of what it took to get the American people (enough of them) on board to launch further and even new investigations, which is the most important aspect.

To be clear, the Steele Dossier and the alleged Russian-government hacks of the DNC and Podesta were the main aspects used to sell the public, which allowed for further and new investigations, including in the US legislature.

The exact thing and moment that triggered everything was a decision or suggestion by someone to even begin to push a narrative as a false-propaganda tactic. When the leaders of the CIA, NSA, FBI, etc., exactly fell in line on that, when it was agreed as a group, and when each took which individual steps to roll it out to cause all of the various investigations would be interesting and useful to know.

Where I believe it likely started though was in Hillary Clinton's head. It all reminds me of the "vast right-wing conspiracy" she said existed to get her husband, Bill Clinton, President at the time, via Bill's and Monica Lewinsky's sexual relations. It all looks to me like Hillary Clinton simply took the page from the standard political play book, which includes all the known dirty tricks down through the centuries, and used it in reverse, against Trump, only in this case, unlike Bill Clinton, Trump didn't do the thing alleged against him as far as any supposed evidence shows.

As for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, he's fighting with one arm because he's not willing to use un-neocon evidence to aid in defeating the Clinton-wing of the Democratic Party and those in the Republican Party (such as the Bushes) who more than go along with her on hating Trump. He hasn't yet challenged the allegations against Russia concerning hacking, all of which hacking by Russia remains pure, even wild, speculation at best, as all of the supposed evidence presented is easily created to make things appear to be Russian-government actions. Those making the accusations have not been put under oath, forced to undergo cross-examination, and to produce all of their evidence to substantiate their allegations.

We are talking about the most important issues facing the planet, as we are talking about the real potential for WWIII between the US and allies against Russia and allies. If ever there were an instance where excruciatingly exact and thorough due process of law should be required and applied, this is it. Exactly who would be deprived of life or liberty or property if some lower standard were used allowing the gravest error to prevail resulting in total nuclear war?

People who say we shouldn't apply such a high standard in matters of foreign policy are dangerous and ought not be in charge of anything involving governmental policies and practices concerning the safety and security of others.
