So the man who doesn't know what intelligence is ordered a raid in Yemen without fully evaluating the intelligence. Get used to it.

US intelligence told Israeli counterparts not to give too much secret info to Trump. Why? It'll go to Russia...then to Iran. @haaretzcom

This is our very very special thread. It's fantastic.

amispartacus Thu 02-Feb-17 19:43:25


Do you agree with me that this is the best thread so far? I have seen some threads but I am sure, Commander Spicer, that this is the best thread ever?

My poor brain can't process all this shit. I think that's the point isn't it? Bamboozle all and get on with ... Not sure what.

Mostly placemarking, but also reminding people that Trump's activities at presidential level have encouraged a whole load of copycat nuttiness at state level.

Arkansas outlawing D&E abortions, and allowing putative fathers to sue abortion providers if their women folk step out of line (and out of the kitchen) to have abortions.

South Dakota overturns law to stamp out corruption and bribery. ('Cos remember, we're all about draining the swamp, people, unless it's our swamp and backers are prepared to bung us large amounts of cash in brown envelopes).

Phew! I was on leave today with things to do. What have I got done other than reading this thread? As they say in Mexico - Nada.

Marking my place wine thanks for new thread. Hasn't he also threatened war with China? I can't keep up with who he's put on notice sad

I wake every morning with hopes of impeachment.

They sold out of 1984 here - it had to be reprinted twice now.

AndHoldTheBun Thu 02-Feb-17 19:46:51

8! Place marking. Thanks

I'm copying this over from the previous thread, hope you don't mind.

I'm currently on a job with someone who voted trump. He is so happy right now. He is looking forward to the wall, says all the news is fake and HATES planned parenthood.
He must have been brainwashed. That's the only answer. I think he's probably the only person in this city who voted for him.

What is planned parenthood?

BestIsWest Thu 02-Feb-17 19:49:02

Just marking place

2017willbeawesome Thu 02-Feb-17 19:49:50

1984 is on Sky Cinema.....coincidence

OhMrsQ Thu 02-Feb-17 19:49:52

deblet its the organisation in the US that provides free health checks for women, birth control and +++SHOCK HORROR+ abortions.

GingerIvy Thu 02-Feb-17 19:50:35

Note - this is UNCONFIRMED. But thought it was interesting.

AndHoldTheBun Thu 02-Feb-17 19:51:45

Planned parenthood- as pp said, although most of what it provides is contraception and associated health checks, abortion is just one part of its services.

I have to stop reading these threads before bed and NYT and WP as I can't sleep afterwards.

I've just started watching house of cards (fabulous) but it really makes me focus on the terrible people in the White House.
